GA: Woman’s presence in a camper telling police she shares the bedroom was reasonable for apparent authority

A woman’s presence in defendant’s camper, his residence, was some evidence of her authority to give consent for officers to enter the camper, particularly where she told the officers, shortly after they entered and before they saw the handgun, that she was involved in a relationship with defendant and had been sharing a bedroom in the camper with him. State v. Rucker, 2016 Ga. App. LEXIS 419 (July 12, 2016).

The record supports the conclusion that defendant consented to a search of his truck for evidence of running down a pedestrian. State v. Green, 2016-Ohio-4915, 2016 Ohio App. LEXIS 2721 (7th Dist. June 16, 2016).*
