NY3: No suppression hearing for lack of pleading a factual basis for suppression

Defendant was properly denied a suppression hearing for not alleging a factual basis for a suppression motion. People v. Seecoomar, 2019 NY Slip Op 05727, 2019 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 5742 (3d Dept. July 18, 2019).*

The stop was justified. Then, “[t]he officers had ample reasonable suspicion to believe that criminal activity, aside from the original traffic violation, was occurring. Defendants were stopped late at night heading in the direction of a neighborhood that was being targeted by Shreveport gang members for vehicle thefts and burglaries. As Defendants were being stopped, they repeatedly reached under the seat as if to hide drugs or retrieve a gun.” Defendant Williams was a passenger without standing. United States v. Jerry, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 119530 (W.D. La. July 18, 2019).*
