Case No. 21-1115

State of Iowa
v.
Fethe Feshaye Baraki

The State was granted discretionary review of a district court order granting the defendant’s motion to suppress the results of a DataMaster breath test. The district court held that the defendant did not understand the implied consent advisory and thus could not give valid consent to take the test. The State argues the district court erred by considering the defendant’s subjective understanding of the advisory instead of evaluating whether the officer made an objectively reasonable effort to communicate the advisory to the defendant.
