OH6: Effort to distance oneself from place searched led to lack of standing

Appellant’s challenge to the search warrant was to one in the trial court and then tried to expand the issue on appeal. Moreover, she tried to distance herself from the places to be searched to the point she had no standing. The issues are not preserved for appeal. State v. Weemes, 2020-Ohio-140, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 115 (6th Dist. Jan. 17, 2020).

A cell phone that defendant borrowed had explicit messages between defendant and “Minor A.” Minor A’s cell phone was subjected to a private search. [But the court doesn’t even mention lack of defendant’s standing in Minor A’s cell phone.] United States v. Walsh, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 7960 (D. Minn. Jan. 17, 2020).*

The stop here was unreasonably extended for a second pat down without additional justification, and the motion to suppress is granted. State v. Stevens, 2020 Del. Super. LEXIS 31 (Jan. 17, 2020).*
