Court of Appeals Opinion

Opinion Number:
Date Published:
Mar 27, 2024

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Hancock County, Colleen Weiland, Judge.  AFFIRMED.  Considered by Greer, P.J., Schumacher, J., and Vogel, S.J.  Opinion by Vogel, S.J. (15 pages)

            Glenn Thompson appeals his drug convictions, challenging the denial of his motion to suppress evidence obtained as a result of a traffic stop.  He argues his constitutional rights were violated because the traffic stop was extended beyond its permissible duration and evidence obtained as a result of a search of his person would not have been inevitably discovered.  OPINION HOLDS: Finding no constitutional violation, we affirm the denial of Thompson’s motion to suppress and his resulting convictions.
