Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's conviction for possession of a controlled substance while on parole for a cocaine distribution conviction is affirmed where: 1) district court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress as there was probable cause to arrest him for possession of a controlled substance, and as such, the subsequent seizure of crack cocaine from his pants was lawful; 2) district court's denial of a motion to suppress evidence recovered from the search was proper as the issuing state court judge had a substantial and legally sufficient basis for concluding that probable cause existed to issue the warrant; and 3) the district court did not violate Rule 11(c)(1) during the plea colloquy.
