US v. Alexander, No. 07-3718

By FindLaw Staff on July 21, 2009 5:12 PM

Conviction for firearms possession is affirmed where: 1) the district court properly denied defendant's motion to suppress evidence found in defendant's car as a warrantless search of the car and the bag found in the engine compartment was reasonable under the Fourth Amendment; and 2) the court properly refused to suppress evidence obtained from a search of an apartment as the officers had probable cause to search the apartment, the evidence was also admissible under the inevitable discovery doctrine, and the occupant of the apartment voluntarily gave her consent to the search.
