Attenuation Doctrine

In Florida Supreme Court case State v. Frierson, police pulled over a driver for a supposed traffic violation (failure to use a blinker). It turned out that no actual violation had occurred and that the officer simply didn’t know the law on that issue (as long as the failure to use the signal doesn’t create a danger to other drivers the statute has not been violated). Non-the less the officer proceeded to run the driver’s name and the system reported an outstanding warrant on him (the warrant too turned out to be bogus as it was issued for the arrest of another individual). Non-the less the officer arrested the man based on the warrant and carried out a search incident to the arrest. The search turned up a gun in the car, which led to the driver being charged with possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
After entering a plea at the trial court level and reserving the right to appeal the denial of his motion to suppress the gun based on an illegal search, the driver ended up in the Florida Supreme Court. The court had to decide whether the gun found was the fruit of the poisonous tree and had to be suppressed or was admissible against the defendant.
The Florida Supreme Court applied the attenuation doctrine as announced in the US Supreme Court Case, Wong Sun.  As applied to the facts in Frierson, the Florida Supreme Court ruled that Wong Sun allows for an officer to (1) Stop a vehicle where there was no actual reasonable suspicion for a traffic stop- (2) Run the driver’s name for a possible warrant and if there is one (even a  bogus one really put out on someone else) the cop may arrest the driver based upon the warrant and carry out a search incident to that arrest and all evidence found there from is admissible; as the bogus warrant dissipates the original taint of the bogus stop.

My head is hurting.

This is really pretty, but is there any way to make the paper more or less waterproof? I make luminaries every christmas but a single night of snow can ruin them for the season when it makes them sag and collapse in on themselves. I'd love to make only one set each year instead of a new set everytime I have people over.

Thanks for the points shared on your blog. Another thing I would like to convey is that losing weight is not about going on a dietary fad and trying to lose as much weight as you can in a couple of weeks. The most effective way in losing weight is by consuming it slowly but surely and obeying some basic ideas which can provide help to make the most from your attempt to slim down. You may realize and be following some tips, although reinforcing knowledge never hurts.

Thanks for the tips you talk about through this site. In addition, quite a few young women that become pregnant never even make an effort to get health insurance because they are full of fearfulness they won't qualify. Although a few states at this point require that insurers present coverage despite the pre-existing conditions. Premiums on these guaranteed programs are usually greater, but when with the high cost of medical care it may be the safer approach to take to protect a person's financial future. sites

Thanks for expressing your ideas. I might also like to mention that video games have been actually evolving. Today's technology and improvements have served create authentic and active games. top article These types of entertainment video games were not that sensible when the concept was being attempted. Just like other kinds of technological know-how, video games way too have had to grow by way of many years. This is testimony towards fast growth and development of video games.

The court had to decide whether the gun found was the fruit of the poisonous tree and had to be suppressed or was possible against the defendant.
