OH7: No standing in package with assumed names

Defendant lacked standing in a package shipped under and to assumed names, neither of which could be linked to him as a known alias. State v. Herbert, 2023-Ohio-4490, 2023 Ohio App. LEXIS 4311 (7th Dist. Dec. 11, 2023).

“We think that under the circumstances presented to Amos, a reasonable individual would have understood that the officers were exercising control and showing authority. No reasonable person who is commanded to stop and show their hands in the middle of the night by uniformed officers with a marked police car would feel free to ignore the command and walk away.” United States v. Amos, 2023 U.S. App. LEXIS 33058 (3d Cir. Dec. 14, 2023).*

Defendant’s guilty plea was waiver of the search claim. Aside from that, there was no hearing and no ruling to appeal. People v. Dunbar, 2023 NY Slip Op 06448, 2023 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 6503 (1st Dept. Dec. 14, 2023).*
