TX13: Stop was consensual but became unreasonable

“We therefore conclude that, although appellant’s encounter with police may have been consensual initially, it advanced into a ‘seizure’ for Fourth Amendment purposes before appellant made any incriminating statements. Because there was no warrant, reasonable suspicion, or probable cause to support such a seizure, the trial court erred in denying the motion to suppress.” The state also hasn’t shown attenuation. Garcia v. State, 2022 Tex. App. LEXIS 3231 (Tex. App. – Corpus Christi – Edinburg May 12, 2022).*

Several officers pulled up to a Taco Bell parking lot because defendant was reported there asleep in his car at night. Their shining flashlights into the car didn’t wake him up. A gun was in plain view on the console, and its seizure was reasonable. United States v. Penn, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 85412 (S.D.Ind. May 11, 2022).*

Defendant’s stop was justified by his missing front license plate. Cortez v. State, 2022 Tex. App. LEXIS 3206 (Tex. App. – Eastland May 11, 2022).*

Probable cause was shown for this warrant for child porn. United States v. Vincent, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 85548 (N.D.Ga. May 3 , 2022).*
