DE: Video doesn’t support state’s claim of consent; smell of MJ gave PC

The dashcam video supports the fact the license plate light was out. The court rejects the state’s argument for consent because the video doesn’t even support it. Instead, the smell of marijuana and defendant’s admission he recently smoked gave probable cause for a search. State v. Seth, 2017 Del. Super. LEXIS 292 (June 16, 2017).

Too dark window tint justified defendant’s stop. The conversation with the officer gave reasonable suspicion to extend the stop. United States v. Powell, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 89916 (M.D. Pa. June 12, 2017).*
