Regan v. Wyoming

Wyoming Supreme Court
2015 WY 62, 350 P.3d 702 (2015)

Facts

Patrick Regan (defendant) and his roommate Shayne Trujillo were arrested after police officers pulled them over for a routine traffic stop and found more than one pound of marijuana and related paraphernalia in the car. Regan owned the car and less than one-quarter of an ounce of the marijuana. The rest of the marijuana belonged to Trujillo, who had enlisted Regan to drive Trujillo to several locations to sell marijuana. Regan specifically declined to participate in the sales because he viewed them as risky, and Regan remained in the car at each stop. Regan was tried and convicted of felony possession of marijuana, which requires proof that the defendant possessed more than three ounces of marijuana. Regan appealed, arguing that the government (plaintiff) failed to prove that Regan possessed the requisite amount of marijuana.
