MA: No REP in unlocked basement of apt building

After a police foot chase, officers entered an unlocked basement of an apartment building and found a firearm that looked like one they were looking for. Defendant can’t show a reasonable expectation of privacy in the basement because everybody in the building had access to it, and others outside too because of no locks. Commonwealth v. DeJesus, 2021 Mass. App. LEXIS 27 (Mar. 1, 2021).

2255 petitioner’s stand alone Fourth Amendment claim was barred by his plea agreement. He did not bring it as an ineffective assistance of counsel claim. United States v. Pittman, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 37087 (D. Kan. Mar. 1, 2021).
