State v. Bettis. Appeal of possession of firearm by felon and armed robbery.
Held: Trial court found that defendant had no standing to challenge the search. This holding was upheld, but the COA went on to find that no evidence existed of defendant's constructive possession. As such, evidence should have been suppressed.
No drugs were found on defendant or in his duffel bag or any of his personal belongings. No evidence that defendant had exclusive control of any of the items or that there were other circumstances indicating that he, not one of the other people in the hotel room, had possession of the drugs.
