WI Court of Appeals – District I
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Larry Alexander Norton
Case No.: 2019AP1796-CR
Officials: BRASH, P.J.
Focus: Unlawful-stop Claim – Reasonable Suspicion
Larry Alexander Norton appeals his judgment of conviction for resisting an officer. Norton contends that the trial court erred in denying his motion to suppress evidence that was seized by police during their investigation of a report of shots fired, asserting that the police did not have the requisite reasonable suspicion to stop him.
The trial court disagreed, finding that the officers had reasonable suspicion for the stop based on the nature of the call to which the police were responding, the fact that the area was considered “troublesome,” and that Norton made “furtive movements” when the police approached him. We affirm.
