Date Published:
Mar 08, 2023

              Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Bremer County, Peter B. Newell, District Associate Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Vaitheswaran, P.J., Tabor, J., and Scott, S.J.  Opinion by Scott, S.J.  Dissent by Tabor, J.  (12 pages)

              Jeffrey Leroy Larson appeals the denial of his motion to suppress, asserting the trooper unlawfully prolonged the traffic stop and his consent was not voluntary.  OPINION HOLDS: We agree with the district court, the stop was not unlawfully extended and Larson’s consent was given voluntarily.  There was no error in denying the motion to suppress.  DISSENT ASSERTS: I respectfully dissent.  The State failed to show that Larson voluntarily consented to the search of his car, so I would reverse the denial of his motion to suppress.
