Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Search and Seizure — pat-down searches

Samuel J. Jacobs appeals from his conviction for marijuana possession on the grounds that the circuit court erroneously denied his motion to suppress evidence obtained during a pat-down search. The circuit court concluded that although the pat-down search of Jacobs was unlawful, the evidence discovered during the search was admissible nonetheless because it ultimately would have been discovered as an inevitable result of his arrest following the lawful search of his vehicle. We affirm, but on the grounds that the pat-down search was lawful. This opinion will not be published.
