CA8: Def didn’t show REP in hospital room for plain view seizure of clothing

Defendant did not show that he had a reasonable expectation of privacy in his hospital room where police entered and saw his clothes in plain view and seized them. United States v. Mattox, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 5747 (8th Cir. Mar. 4, 2022).

Because defendant’s cell phone was lawfully seized as potential evidence, the motion for return was properly denied. State v. Martre, 2022-Ohio-639, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 567 (6th Dist. Mar. 4, 2022).

The smell of marijuana coming from the trunk of a car was probable cause and triggers the automobile exception. State v. Curry, 2022-Ohio-627, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 571 (1st Dist. Mar. 4, 2022).*
