Defendants Lacked Standing to Object to Car Search

U.S. v. Ocegueda, 2015 WL 1322855 (3/25/15) (Ut.) (unpub'd) - A motion to suppress evidence found as the result of a car search fails on standing grounds. Neither the driver nor the passenger had title to the car. There was no evidence the legal owner conveyed a possessory interest to either one. Nor were the defendants able to show their arrests lead directly or indirectly to the search.
