E.D.Ky.: Officer consulting prosecutor about SW before issuance is a factor in GFE

The officer’s consulting a prosecutor on the search warrant isn’t conclusive on good faith, but it is an important factor. United States v. Anderson, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 90265 (E.D. Ky. May 29, 2019).

There was probable cause for the initial stop and the first extension of the stop while defendant was looking for his proof of insurance. A second extension of the stop was not with reasonable suspicion because the court doubts the credibility of the officer’s observations and claims that there was reasonable suspicion of drug possession. State v. Frost, 2019 Del. Super. LEXIS 258 (May 28, 2019).*
