Cal.1st: Minor in possession of MJ is PC for search of car

Lawful possession of marijuana in a car is not probable cause for a search. A minor in possession is unlawful, so it is. In re Randy C., 2024 Cal. App. LEXIS 292 (1st Dist. May 3, 2024).

There was a substantial basis for concluding that probable cause existed despite the week long delay between the shooting and warrant issuance because a difference of a week during an ongoing investigation of felonious assault where the perpetrator was unidentified was not unreasonable. State v. Griffin, 2024-Ohio-1699 (1st Dist. May 3, 2024).*

Whether defendant consented to a search of his closet is a moot point because it was valid as a probation search. United States v. Rivera-Pitre, 2024 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 80723 (D.P.R. Apr. 29, 2024).*
