D.S.C.: Renter of hotel room had authority to consent to search of room but not her partner’s safe he brought to room

The renter of a hotel room has apparent authority to consent to its search. She did not, however, have either actual or apparent authority to consent to his safe in the room. United States v. Jaqu, 2020 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 185722 (D.S.C. Oct. 7, 2020).*

While weaving within one’s lane and touching the line three times isn’t a traffic violation, the fact it was early morning hours was justification for a stop for impaired driving. The trial court erred in suppressing the stop. People v. Anderson, 2020 IL App (2d) 190443, 2020 Ill. App. LEXIS 704 (Oct. 6, 2020).*
