DQ1 BE THE JUDGE
You are a judge hearing a motion to suppress evidence obtained from vehicle search.
Facts: The officer conducted a traffic stop of a vehicle after seeing it failing to stop at a stop sign. The driver produced identification, but no license. Upon further investigation, the officer learned that the driver had a suspended license. The officer placed the driver under arrest, conducted a search of the suspect, and secured the driver in the back of his vehicle. The officer then went back to the car and conducted a search of the vehicle. Illegal drugs and weapons were found. As a result of the search, several new charges were filed.
As the judge, how do you rule? Can you cite supporting case law?
