MO: Even if 4A IAC, no prejudice

Even if defense counsel was ineffective for not moving to suppress files found on his computer that corroborated his child rape victim, he can’t show prejudice because of other exhibits in evidence which were incontestable. The post-conviction court erred in finding prejudice. Miller v. State, 2021 Mo. App. LEXIS 1049 (Dec. 1, 2021).

The 2016 authorization for obtaining defendant’s cell phone records was by court order and valid. (Carpenter was 2018.) United States v. Lopez, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 231188 (W.D.N.C. Dec. 2, 2021).*

There was reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop for possession of a firearm. Defendant argues that the probable cause standard should apply, but it’s reasonable suspicion. United States v. Elliott, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 231290 (D.N.J. Dec. 2, 2021).*
