W.D.N.Y.: RS for parole search of house justified by failure to report, curfew and travel violations, and tampering with GPS

A parolee’s “fail[ure] to report to the parole office, staying out past curfew, traveling out of his parole-approved area, and tampering with his GPS monitor” justified a parole search of the home. United States v. Jackson, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 209922 (W.D.N.Y. Oct. 31, 2022).

Surveillance officers were following defendant. He committed a traffic offense, and that justified his stop by an officer in a marked car. United States v. Dorsey, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210045 (M.D. Pa. Nov. 17, 2022).*

Three controlled buys from defendant’s house is probable cause for a warrant. United States v. Williams, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210035 (N.D. Ohio Nov. 18, 2022).*

“Viewing the ‘totality of the circumstances,’ Florida v. Harris, 568 U.S. 237, 244, 133 S. Ct. 1050, 185 L. Ed. 2d 61 (2013), through the ‘lens of common sense,’ as the Supreme Court has instructed, id. at 248, these facts collectively give rise to probable cause to believe that a search of Weathervane would uncover evidence of drug trafficking.” Moreover, the good faith exception applies. United States v. Ripley, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 210037 (N.D. Ohio Nov. 18, 2022).*
