WI: Drug dog “instinct exception” not applicable here, even if it is ever adopted

The court declines to adopt, at least for now, a drug dog’s “instinct exception” for the dog entering defendant’s car. Other courts have adopted that exception, but factually it doesn’t even apply here because the court finds the dog was encouraged to enter the car, and it wasn’t instinctual. State v. Campbell, 2024 Wisc. App. LEXIS 49 (Jan. 23, 2024).

Defendant’s habeas search claim denied on the merits (no Stone). Hearsay from a crime victim can be probable cause. Carter v. Sec’y, Dep’t of Corr., 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 11388 (M.D. Fla. Jan. 23, 2024).*

Defendant, on supervision, had an arrest warrant issued for him for a federal offense, and that was enough to search his house under the statutory search waiver. United States v. Vales, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 11496 (E.D. Wis. Jan. 23, 2024).*
