CA7: Burglar had no REP in his own backpack carried in

Defendant was stopped and searched as a suspected burglar in a house he had no business being in. Because his presence was “wrongful,” he had no reasonable expectation of privacy in the backpack he carried in. United States v. Sawyer, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 20299 (7th Cir. July 9, 2019).

The CI’s tip was sufficiently corroborated for the search warrant to issue. Defense counsel wasn’t ineffective for not challenging the credibility of the CI when he doesn’t show what that should have been. State v. Williams, 2019 Neb. App. LEXIS 207 (July 9, 2019).*
