D.Vt.: Overnight guest had standing despite his illegal acts

“Defendant spent the night at the Apartment and was found by law enforcement sleeping in a bed. His alleged illegal activities in the Apartment do not render his expectation of privacy unreasonable.” He has standing. United States v. Santini, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 33424 (D.Vt. Feb. 25, 2022).

The warrant issuing court credited the hearsay, including information that the source originally lied about her name which the officer included. There was probable cause on the totality for the warrant to issue. State v. Revere, 2022-Ohio-551, 2022 Ohio App. LEXIS 475 (2d Dist. Feb. 25, 2022).*

Despite the affidavit for search warrant not including the informant’s criminal history, it was still issued and executed in good faith. United States v. Mercery, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 33114 (M.D.Ga. Feb. 25, 2022).*
