D.Kan.: 37 day old knowledge of def’s suspended DL wasn’t stale for RS for a stop

The officer’s prior knowledge that defendant’s license was expired wasn’t considered stale for a stop, even for 37 days. [It’s a stop on reasonable suspicion, not a search on probable cause.] United States v. Bell, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 62616 (D.Kan. April 25, 2017).

Defendant’s alleged illegal arrest was purged by the officers telling him he was free to go, yet he was willing to talk and signed consents to search his cell phone and car. During the questioning, he was allowed to go around the building without accompaniment. He was also Mirandized more than once and agreed to cooperate. Commonwealth v. Yandamuri, 2017 Pa. LEXIS 945 (April 26, 2017).*
