Defendant signed a consent to search his computer hard drive to the US Army CID, but, once lawyered up, he effectively withdrew the consent a week later. The hard drive was searched after the withdrawal of consent, and the search is suppressed. McDonnell v. State, 2022 Md. App. LEXIS 852 (Dec. 1, 2022).

Schantz, 2022 IL App (5th) 200045, 2022 Ill. App. LEXIS 503 (Nov. 30, 2022).*
