"Aguirre's public defender says police had no reason to search the digital memory cards on Aguirre's phones during a traffic stop."

If it was just a routine traffic stop, I'd tend to agree with them. I'm assuming (though the article doesn't say) that this is how they found out that he had the images in question? If so, expect the case to be thrown out (rightfully so).

I am sure that your opinion would be exactly the same if that was your minor child on the memory card, right?!!!

I know they had no probable cause, I was just making light of the fact that he had evidence on his phone, so there WAS reason to look at it. They just had no right to. And yes, it does mean that the guy will probably get off.

Why are they searching his phone during a traffic stop?

And what are those 'other private moments'?

This article creates more questions than it answers.

Actually it was the all-Republican Ohio Supreme Court, but you have the holding right. Police can search but they need a warrant based on reasonable suspicion that they'll find evidence of a crime. The 4th Amendment prohibits unreasonable searches.

I meant to say a warrant based on probable cause.

A traffic stop alone within it's self does not constitute probable cause end of story. That is unless your the Powell, Ohio Police Department and aren't aware that a room full of people are listening to your traffic stop on a cell phone which stops you dead in your tracks when they let the officers know they're calling the officer's supervisor.

It doesn't matter what the make up of the ruling body is they protected the rights of the individual during a traffic stop. This stops jack booted thugs like the Powell Ohio Police Department from going through someone's car absolutely no reason at all.

This still doesn't explain what prompted the officer to look in his cell phone.

doesnt matter what your or anyone opinion is...the law says you cant just search what ever some stupid cops wants to....so this search will be tossed out and he will go free, becouse some stupid cop doesnt follow the law.

Today's story says the man pleaded no contest. He either is not getting competent legal representation or he isn't listening -- one or the other.

Today's story also says his public defender "hasnt ruled out" relying on an Ohio Supreme Court case holding that police have no right to search cell phone contents after a traffic stop. That's like saying you "havent ruled out" actually doing your job.

Just another example of corrupt cops. They'll do anything, break any laws, to get an arrest so they can brag when they get back to the PD.

Why do these people hate the Constitution?

Well. I would not take that result as a given. As a lawyer I hope the guy is getting the competent representation he needs.
