E.D.N.Y.: Def did nothing to show his standing in the car or the things seized from it

Reasonable suspicion supported the stop for no license plate light. Then, defendant lacks a reasonable expectation of privacy in the car or its contents. “However, neither Defendant’s affidavit nor the evidence adduced at the hearing establish that Defendant had any ownership or possessory interest in the vehicle, the potato chip bag, or the firearm. Without any such evidence, the Court cannot find that he had a subjective expectation of privacy.” United States v. Legree, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 48209 (E.D. N.Y. Mar. 23, 2019).*

There was reasonable suspicion for the stop and detention, and then probable cause developed to conduct an automobile exception search of the car. United States v. Somerville, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 47485 (W.D. Pa. Mar. 22, 2019).*
