United States of America, Plaintiff-appellee, v. Alan Dale Goeas, Defendant-appellant, 9 F.3d 1554 (9th Cir. 1993)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit - 9 F.3d 1554 (9th Cir. 1993)

Submitted Sept. 24, 1993. *Decided Oct. 25, 1993

Before: CHOY, GOODWIN and SKOPIL, Circuit Judges.


Alan Dale Goeas appeals his convictions following jury trial on charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g) (1). Goeas contends that the district court erred when it denied his pretrial motion to suppress evidence of the weapon and ammunition. We affirm.

Goeas was not lawfully on a former girlfriend's premises when he hid the evidence which he sought to suppress. He therefore had no reasonable expectation of privacy in the location and had no standing to raise the suppression issue. See Rakas v. Illinois, 439 U.S. 128, 148.



The panel unanimously finds this case suitable for submission on the record and briefs and without oral argument. Fed. R. App. P. 34(a); Ninth Circuit Rule 34-4
