The appellant asserts that the trial court erred in denying a motion to suppress. Three requirements must be met before the seizure of an object is lawful under the plain-view exception to the general rule that police must have a warrant to seize an object. First, law enforcement officials must lawfully be where the object can be plainly viewed. Second, the incriminating nature of the object must be immediately apparent to the officials. Third, the officials must have the right to access the object. The trial court's judgments are affirmed. Dallas Court of Appeals, No. 05-11-00868-CR, 06-14-2012.
