Wisconsin Court of Appeals

Criminal

Search and Seizure — reasonable suspicion

Johnnie Austin appeals the judgment convicting him of carrying a concealed weapon, contrary to Wis. Stat. § 941.23 and the postconviction order denying his request for expungement of his conviction. Austin argues that the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress because it based its decision on insufficient facts and an improper application of the Fourth Amendment. Additionally, Austin argues that the trial court erred in denying his request for expungement because it based its decision on irrelevant and improper factors. This court disagrees with Austin’s contentions and affirms. This opinion will not be published.
