    wasn't this already settled in US vs Kyllo? Not Allowed!

    The public defender is probably relying on Kyllo (at least I hope he is) as well as state law. As for being settled, it's settled for now, but if any new issues arise that differ from Kyllo, then those would have to be resolved (which is what the prosecution would argue).

    Just looking at the short blurb posted above, the facts sound like Kyllo though, and the defendant would likely win on appeal.
