NE: Oral and written advice of rights to refuse consent attenuated any possible minor illegal police misconduct

The officer’s misconduct, if any, wasn’t flagrant and the later written advisement and waiver of consent was attenuation. State v. Bray, 297 Neb. 916, 2017 Neb. LEXIS 178 (Sept. 29, 2017).

Defendant was driving a car carrier, and he was stopped by a DOT officer for crossing the fog line. He freely consented to a search of the cars he was hauling, and the stop was not unreasonably extended before that. He could be found in constructive possession because he had complete control of all the cars on the truck and could freely look in them. Pokatilov v. State, 2017 Ark. 264, 2017 Ark. LEXIS 240 (Sept. 28, 2017).*
