People v. Peluso.

2021 CO 16. No. 20SA316. Criminal Law—Evidence—Searches and Seizures—Fourth Amendment.

March 8, 2021


In this interlocutory appeal, the Supreme Court reviewed the trial court’s order suppressing evidence of drugs discovered during a warrantless search of defendant’s residence. Because the officers acted on a reasonable belief that defendant’s girlfriend had authority to consent to the search, the Court concluded that the trial court erred in suppressing the evidence. The Court therefore reversed the trial court’s suppression order and remanded the case for further proceedings.
