ID: Def’s claim he needed an ambulance during a stop extended it, not the officer

Defendant was lawfully stopped for a traffic offense. He claimed he needed an ambulance and one was called for him. While the EMTs were attending to him the officer started on his report of the stop. He asked defendant for consent and he did: “‘Hey Sergio, do you mind if I search your car real quick to make sure there is nothing in it?’ Galindo responded, ‘Um, I don’t mind. It’s Stephanie’s car. She gave it to me this morning.’” This stop was not unlawfully extended under Rodriguez. State v. Galindo, 2022 Ida. App. LEXIS 17 (Sep. 22, 2022).

“Allee’s conduct involved possessing and distributing cocaine—a Schedule II controlled substance—and possessing a short-barreled shotgun in furtherance of drug trafficking crimes. Upon execution of a search warrant, law enforcement discovered a large amount of stolen property as well as multiple firearms at his residence. His conduct posed a substantial risk of harm to the public. The nature, circumstances, and seriousness of the offense weigh against compassionate release.” United States v. Allee, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 170772 (W.D.N.Y. Sep. 21, 2022).*

Defendant was driving the wrong way on a one-way street, and within one minute there was a plain view of marijuana. United States v. Coleman, No. 1:22CR64, 2022 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 171040 (N.D. Ohio Sep. 21, 2022).*
