OH5: No standing in rental car where contract expired and driver was not authorized on contract

“The evidence demonstrated the vehicle was owned by the rental company, it was leased to someone other than Appellant, the rental agreement had lapsed, and the record does not support Appellant having authorization to use the vehicle. As a result, Appellant lacked standing to contest the validity of the search of that vehicle.” State v. Wells, 2022-Ohio-2903, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 2735 (5th Dist. Aug. 17, 2022).

On defendant’s motion to suppress his search on supervised release, the parole search exception applies, not specifically the special needs exception. United States v. Alfaro, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 148432 (W.D.N.Y. Aug. 18, 2022).

Defendant’s stop for traveling two miles in the passing lane and slightly behind a tractor-trailer without passing was reasonable under state law. State v. Breznai, 2022 OK CR 17, 2022 Okla. Crim. App. LEXIS 16 (Aug. 18, 2022).*
