In re D.C., A127228

Juvenile court's denial of a minor-defendant's motion to suppress evidence of stolen goods found in his room, in finding defendant a continued ward of the court and continuing probation in the custody of his mother, is affirmed as, although defendant's arguments that the evidence should have been suppressed because his mother did not have authority to consent to a search of his bedroom and that his objection to the officers' entry to the apartment precluded consensual search under Georgia v. Randolph, 547 U.S. 103 (2006), might have prevailed were he an adult, his mother had authority to consent to the search of his bedroom and to override any objection he raised to the search of her apartment.
