MO: Computer check showing LPN expired was RS despite apparent valid sticker

There was reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop based on a computer check of his LPN which showed it had expired. The sticker, however, showed it was current. The officer could make the stop to check whether it was counterfeit, something he’d encountered before. State v. Utech, 2021 Mo. App. LEXIS 47 (Jan. 19, 2021).

Defendant’s arrest by a tribal officer was with probable cause. United States v. Scott, 2021 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 9834 (D. Mont. Jan. 19, 2021).*

“The underlying issue in Schwartz’s petition is that the Florida appellate court did not rule in her favor even though her attorney expressed that he believed that she would be successful. But the fact that the outcome did not go in her favor does not mean that the court did not ‘meaningfully review’ her motions.” Schwartz v. Fla. Dep’t of Corr., 2021 U.S. App. LEXIS 1473 (11th Cir. Jan. 20, 2021).*
