MA: Owner’s DL was suspended, and it wasn’t apparent that driver wasn’t owner when stop occurred

Similar to Glover, Massachusetts held well before that the suspension of the owner’s DL can justify a stop. There was no indication [such as gender] here that the driver could not be the owner, so the stop was with reasonable suspicion. Commonwealth v. Puac-Cuc, 2020 Mass. App. LEXIS 67 (June 8, 2020).

Because defendant’s stop was continued because he had a suspended DL, the dog sniff wasn’t unreasonable. State v. Wilson, 2020-Ohio-3227, 2020 Ohio App. LEXIS 2167 (12th Dist. June 8, 2020).*
