NY4: State didn’t prove stop justified for consent given in an interview room 4½ hrs later

At the suppression hearing from this 2001 stop, defendant consented in an interview room 4½ hrs after the stop to an officer who had nothing to do with the stop. The state didn’t prove the consent by failing to call the officer who made the stop. People v. Kendrick, 2017 NY Slip Op 00870, 2017 N.Y. App. Div. LEXIS 798 (4th Dept. Feb. 3, 2017).

The police received a 911 call about human trafficking or pimping, and stopped the car. The conversation corroborated the call, so the detention was with probable cause. United States v. Fykes, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 1946 (10th Cir. Feb. 3, 2017).*
