NE: Driver could consent to search of car when owner was passenger

Defendant was a passenger in his own car, and it was stopped by the police. The driver gave consent, and it was binding on the owner passenger. State v. Hill, 298 Neb. 675, 2018 Neb. LEXIS (Jan. 19, 2018).

When the stop occurred doesn’t really matter in this case vis-a-vis reasonable suspicion because the vehicle was ultimately searched with a search warrant. State v. Gathing, 2018 Tenn. Crim. App. LEXIS 42 (Jan. 19, 2018).*
