Criminal Practice – Search & Seizure – Pat-Down – Expectation of Privacy – Front Porch – Drug Deals Observed — Gun in Pocket – Smell of Marijuana (access required)

State v. Robinson Although defendant was sitting on an apartment porch when police tried to search him, since he did not live in the apartment or even in the apartment complex, and since there is no evidence he was an overnight guest or had a connection to the premises or the apartment tenant, defendant failed to show he had a reasonable expectation of privacy on the porch.
