CA7: Home confinement sentence included a valid search waiver

Defendant was serving a home confinement sentence that included a search waiver. Officers developed reasonable suspicion of another crime and a violation of living conditions. The search was reasonable. United States v. Beechler, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 12312 (7th Cir. May 19, 2023).*

The seizure of defendant’s cell phone was justified because of fear of destruction of evidence it could contain. United States v. Pivnick, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 12313 (2d Cir. May 19, 2023).*

The state’s invocation of informant privilege for information that led to a search warrant is sustained. Defendant concedes disclosing his or her identity could be harmful to the informant. Commonwealth v. Whitfield, 2023 Mass. LEXIS 209 (May 19, 2023).*

Defendant’s movements and avoiding eye contact with the officer then the officer seeing the L-shaped outline of a gun under his shirt was reasonable suspicion. Brownson v. Commonwealth, 2023 Va. App. LEXIS 300 (May 16, 2023).*
