CA10: Def’s actions were completely consistent with innocence and did not add up to RS

The officer did not have reasonable suspicion for defendant’s stop or its continuation. Defendant’s actions were consistent with somebody who had nothing to hide, and the district court’s findings got no presumption of correctness. Denial of the suppression motion reversed. United States v. Frazier, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 9912 (10th Cir. Apr. 13, 2022).

Defendant’s ineffective assistance of counsel suppression claims fail. The issue was addressed at trial, in the direct appeal, and now on post-conviction. State v. Jackson, 2022 Del. Super. LEXIS 143 (Apr. 11, 2022).*

The officer had reasonable suspicion to detain defendant based on information from a detective who had been investigating her and his own observations. United States v. Johnson, 2022 U.S. App. LEXIS 9900 (8th Cir. Apr. 13, 2022).*

Defendant’s consent was voluntary on the totality, even though he spoke an indigenous language from Mexico and learned some Spanish in school. United States v. Merino-Lopez, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 66788 (D.Ariz. Mar. 21, 2022).
