E.D.Wis.: Fact no ticket was issued for cause for stop doesn’t make stop unconstitutional

The stop was justified, and the fact the officers had a subjective motive to conduct a drug investigation and never issued a traffic ticket doesn’t make the stop and search unconstitutional. The search warrant for defendant’s home was based on probable cause and was supported by the good faith exception. United States v. Cunningham, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 73981 (E.D.Wis. June 7, 2016), R&R 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 74073 (E.D. Wis. Apr. 29, 2016).

Defendant was stopped and the officer discovered that he was driving on a suspended DL for a prior DUI. That gave probable cause to arrest and that let to an inventory search. United States v. Parrott, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 75826 (W.D.Tenn. April 13, 2016).*
