United States of America v. Larry A. Jones, Jr.
21‐1293
Appeal from the United States District Court for the Northern District of Indiana, Fort Wayne Division. Justice Damon R. Leichty.
Criminal. Affirms dismissal of Larry A. Jones Jr.’s motion to remove a firearm found and seized in his motel room, resulting in his conviction for possession of a firearm as a convicted felon. Finds Jones’s consent to the research to be voluntary. Also finds that Jones failed to meet his obligation to show that the scope of consent did not include looking under the bed. Finally, there is nothing to suggest that the district court did not correctly apply the standard of de novo review to each of the conclusions and recommendations proposed by the trial judge.
