CA11: Parolee has no REP where he stays

Officers had cause for a protective sweep as well as consent from defendant’s girlfriend to search her apartment where he often stayed. A shotgun was in plain view. Defendant also had no standing because he was a parolee. United States v. Sanders, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 19457 (11th Cir. Oct. 5, 2017). [No reasonable expectation of privacy would have been a better way to put it.]

Defendant’s meeting with the officers was by consent. They went to the house to do a knock-and-talk with him, and the occupant led them to the backyard where defendant was. He talked to them outside. State v. Bargery, 2017 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 902 (Oct. 6, 2017).*
