State v. Thomas

Court of Appeals of Minnesota. July 03, 2023


After a traffic stop for speeding, State of Minnesota charged my client with one count of first-degree sale of a controlled substance (500 or more dosage units of a hallucinogen while possessing a firearm), and one count of first-degree possession of a controlled substance (25 grams or more of cocaine while possessing a firearm). We filed a motion to suppress the evidence discovered during the traffic stop and dismiss the charges. After a contested-omnibus hearing, the district court denied the motion to suppress. After a stipulated facts trial, we appealed.


Thomas P. Leavitt argued that the district court erred when it determined there was reasonable articulable suspicion to expand the scope of a traffic stop. The Minnesota Court of Appeals concluded that the district court legally erred when it determined the trooper had reasonable articulable suspicion to expand the scope of the stop, and reversed and vacated the conviction.
