Parole Status of Passenger Doesn't Justify Search of Car

In The People of the State of California v. Douglas Schmitz the California Appellate Court held that just because a front passenger was on parole and had waived her fourth amendment rights, the police couldn't search of the back seat of the vehicle. The drugs, methamphetamine and syringes, were suppressed. In other words, the evidence was thrown out. The case was decided 8/18/2010.
