IL: Delaying stop to call car rental company wasn’t reasonable

Defendant was driving a Hertz rental car, and the delay of the stop to call Hertz was not within the mission of a traffic stop for speeding. “Similarly, we reject the State’s argument that the call to Hertz can be construed as one of the permissible “ordinary inquiries” incident to the traffic stop, akin to a routine check of a driver’s license, registration, or proof of insurance.” There was no suggestion of a crime against Hertz. People v. Cassino, 2019 IL App (1st) 181510, 2019 Ill. App. LEXIS 398 (June 7, 2019).

Exigent circumstances supported the officer’s warrantless entry into the premises. The court concludes that he did not rummage in the dresser drawer and saw a weapon and money in plain view. United States v. Booth, 2019 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 94407 (D. Mont. June 5, 2019).*
