E.D.Ark.: State parole search waiver applies to hotel room used for drug dealing

The parole search waiver under state law provides for searching one’s domicile. Here there was probable cause to believe defendant was using a hotel room for drug dealing, and he was there for more than a de minimus time. Thus, the waiver applies to the hotel room. United States v. Odom, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9967 (E.D. Ark. Jan. 19, 2024).

A host of suspicious facts became reasonable suspicion to continue defendant’s traffic stop, including criminal history, likely addiction, driving alone and nonstop from L.A. to Minnesota but not knowing where. United States v. Mendoza, 2023 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 233498 (D. Neb. Dec. 30, 2023).*

Defendant’s stop for having a temporary tag in the back window that was not obscured was continued without reasonable suspicion and became unreasonable. Motion to suppress granted. United States v. Childs, No. 2:23-cr-108, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9995 (S.D. Ohio Jan. 19, 2024).*
