KS: Inadequate findings and conclusions must be brought to trial court’s attention before appeal

Defendant should have objected to the adequacy of findings of fact and conclusions of law on his search issue in the trial court first. “Without such an objection, this court must presume the district court found all the facts needed to support its legal conclusions.” It can’t be argued for the first time on appeal. Ponds v. State, 2019 Kan. App. LEXIS 10 (Feb. 8, 2019).

By the time the drug dog arrived, defendant’s situation had escalated to his arrest. Therefore, the detention before the drug dog was reasonable. Cromartie v. State, 2019 Ga. App. LEXIS 47 (Feb. 8, 2019).*
