Style: State of Tennessee v. Andre Jujuan Lee Green

TSC Docket Number: M2022-00899-SC-R11-CD

Court of Criminal Appeals Opinion: https://tncourts.gov/sites/default/files/OpinionsPDFVersion/Majority%20Opinion%202022-899-CCA.pdf

Summary by the Court of Criminal Appeals:

The State appeals the trial court’s order granting the defendant’s motion to suppress evidence recovered during the search of the car in which the defendant was a passenger. The State asserts that the trial court erred because the scent of marijuana provided probable cause for the search regardless of the possibility that legal hemp was the source of the odor. After review, we conclude the trial court erred in granting the defendant’s motion to suppress. Therefore, we reverse the trial court’s order granting the defendant’s motion for suppression, reinstate the indictments against the defendant, and remand to the trial court for further proceedings.
