CA3: Nervousness in a high crime area isn’t RS

Defendant was in a “high crime” area around an apartment complex, and he was nervous when accosted by a law enforcement officer, something normal. This just wasn’t enough to be reasonable suspicion. United States v. Alvin, 2017 U.S. App. LEXIS 12972 (3d Cir. July 19, 2017).

The court credits that consent was given by defendant because officers entered with a key and he voluntarily turned it over. United States v. Hernandez-Gonzalez, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 109928 (S.D. Fla. July 6, 2017).*
