Father: Cocaine in Diaper Illegally Found
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) -- A father facing drug charges argues a trooper made an unconstitutional search by changing his son's apparently soiled diaper and finding a bag of crack hidden inside.
The diaper change was a search conducted without probable cause, Walter H. Martin argued in asking the court to throw out the evidence.
Martin, 30, goes on trial next week. His wife, Tawana Fairley, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge in the fall.
Trooper Douglas Humphrey discovered the drugs last June after pulling Martin over for speeding.
Humphrey learned Martin was a suspect in a drug investigation, and a search by a drug-detection dog led Fairley to admit she had marijuana, court documents said.
When Humphrey lifted the 18-month-old boy, he noticed "a large load" in the baby's diaper. The trooper then found the cocaine inside.

VERY funny though, I like it...hahahaha
But seriously is that considered an illegal search? The cop does have probable cause, considering the fact that they are wanted on drug charges. And I'm sure the kid is not that well endowed...
