UT: 40 minute delay for dog was reasonable where it was tied up in another part of same investigation

The 40 minute delay for the dog sniff, already based on reasonable suspicion, was reasonable. The dog was at a residence related to the same investigation then came to where the car was stopped. The court also mentions the weather was bad with heavy snow. State v. Perkins, 2019 Utah App. LEXIS 121 (July 11, 2019).*

Defendant’s motion through new counsel to seek to file a second motion to suppress to add a Franks ground was denied for timeliness. The proposed motion to suppress also wouldn’t be sufficient anyway because it was speculative. United States v. Gulley, 2019 U.S. App. LEXIS 20613 (6th Cir. July 11, 2019).*
