WI Court of Appeals – District III
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Jason D. Kluck
Case No.: 2020AP002113-CR
Officials: Stark, P.J., Hruz and Gill, JJ.
Focus: Evidence-Informant’s Tip
Kluck appeals from a judgment convicting him of operating a motor vehicle with a restricted controlled substance in his blood, as a fourth offense. The sole issue on appeal is whether an informant’s tip was sufficiently reliable to provide reasonable suspicion for police to conduct Kluck’s traffic stop. The appeals court concludes that the specificity of the information provided by the informant and its corroboration support its reliability. Therefore, the circuit court properly denied Kluck’s motion to suppress evidence gathered following the traffic stop.
