W.D.N.Y.: No IAC for trial strategy def had nothing to do with house, which denies him standing to contest search

Defendant disavowed any connection at trial to a particular house as a trial strategy. Thus, it was not ineffective assistance of counsel for not moving to suppress the search of a house he thus lacked standing in–defendant would not have prevailed on a motion to suppress if one had been filed on the merits, either. United States v. Pierce, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 19353 (W.D. N.Y. Feb. 7, 2019).*

Defendant’s oversearching claim for searching his camper is rejected because the search warrant permitted it. People v. Madigan, 2019 NY Slip Op 00999, 2019 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 998 (4th Dept. Feb. 9, 2019).*

In an alleged sex offense, there was probable cause shown to seize bedding and clothing for DNA. State v. Shannon, 2019-Ohio-421, 2019 Ohio App. LEXIS 438 (11th Dist. Feb. 8, 2019).*
