D.Kan.: Drug dog touching car door handle with nose isn’t unreasonable search

The drug dog touching the vehicle door handle with its nose was not an unreasonable search. United States v. Green, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88401 (D. Kan. May 16, 2024).

Defendant’s 2255 wasn’t timely. “Even if Williams’s motion were timely, he would not be entitled to relief. He offers two arguments why his counsel was ineffective, rendering his plea involuntary. … Both arguments fail to persuade.” He loses on the merits of his Fourth Amendment claims in any event. United States v. Williams, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 88357 (D. Kan. May 15, 2024).*

The affidavit for search warrant in this child pornography case is clearly more than “bare bones” and the good faith exception applies. United States v. Perricone, 2024 U.S. App. LEXIS 12002 (5th Cir. May 17, 2024).*
