UT: State const doesn’t require RS to run an LPN

“May a police officer, without reasonable suspicion of criminal activity, run a license plate check on a passing vehicle? The federal courts, interpreting the U.S. Constitution, have answered this question in the affirmative. Jennifer Oryall, who was found to be driving under the influence of drugs after an officer checked her license plate and detained her, asks us to conclude that law enforcement officers violated the Utah Constitution by performing such a check without reasonable suspicion that Oryall was engaged in criminal activity. The district court was not persuaded by Oryall’s arguments, and neither are we. Accordingly, we affirm.” State v. Oryall, 2018 UT App 211, 2018 Utah App. LEXIS 227 (Nov. 9, 2018).
