D.Neb.: “Defendant’s own characteristics show his consent was voluntary.”

“Defendant’s own characteristics show his consent was voluntary. Defendant was an adult and conversed easily with officers prior to the search. He appeared to be at least of average intelligence. Defendant’s answers to the officer’s questions and his overall demeanor showed he understood what was happening and what was being asked. The record also shows Defendant was no stranger to law enforcement and would have been aware of his rights. … [¶] Defendant’s environment and his interaction with officers also suggest consent to search was voluntary. …” United States v. Mathijssen, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 247593 (D.Neb. Dec. 29, 2021).*
