Unlawful-stop Claim – Reasonable Suspicion

WI Court of Appeals – District IV

Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Houadou T. Yang

Case No.: 2019AP1730-CR

Officials: Fitzpatrick, P.J., Graham, and Nashold, JJ.

Focus: Unlawful-stop Claim – Reasonable Suspicion

The State of Wisconsin appeals a circuit court order granting Houadou Yang’s motion to suppress evidence derived from a stop of Yang’s vehicle. We agree with the State that police lawfully extended the stop to conduct a drug sniff of Yang’s vehicle based on their reasonable suspicion that Yang was involved in illegal drug activity. We reverse the suppression order and remand for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
