OH: Lack of RS for stop or knowledge of an arrest warrant denies state reliance on Strieff for outstanding warrant

Defendant was sitting in a car near a drug house doing nothing wrong. Police accosted him under the pretext there might be a warrant for him. It turned out there was. Even applying Strieff, the court concludes that Strieff was far stronger on the facts for the state than here, and the motion to suppress was properly granted. There was no reasonable suspicion at all for the stop. State v. Carter, 2020-Ohio-589, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 550 (10th Dist. Feb. 20, 2020).

Defendant made no preliminary showing of a reasonable expectation of privacy to even have standing, so the motion to suppress was properly denied without a hearing. People v. Johnson, 2020 NY Slip Op 01244, 2020 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 1257 (1st Dept. Feb. 20, 2020).*
