NJ: Entering def’s driveway to get better look at his house violated curtilage

Officer’s entry onto defendant’s driveway to get a better look at his house violated curtilage. State v. Ingram, 2023 N.J. Super. LEXIS 13 (Feb. 13, 2023).

As for a suggestion of leniency for cooperation and consent, “TFO Vasquez’s statements fall short of false promise and thus are permissible.” United States v. Williams, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 23792 (N.D. Ill. Feb. 13, 2023).*

Defendant’s vehicle was stopped for an LPN that didn’t match it. The subsequent inventory was within policy and valid. It was not a pure community caretaking search. Deaton v. State, 2023 Ind. App. LEXIS 48 (Ct. App. Feb. 13, 2023).*
