Traffic stop, reasonable suspicion, qualified immunity

Where an officer challenged the denial of his motion for summary judgment based on qualified immunity in an action brought by a plaintiff who alleged that a traffic stop was initiated unconstitutionally, the order is reversed in part because the officer was entitled to qualified immunity since the officer was relied on facts similar to those in prior cases in which reasonable suspicion of drug trafficking was found and the extension of the traffic stop was upheld.  Judgment is reversed.

Sentencing, enhancement and counterfeit goods

Where a defendant challenged his 41 month sentence for trafficking in counterfeit goods, the trial court did not err in including the full amount of the value of the goods seized in the relevant sale and in applying a 12 level enhancement because he was in charge of the event, and denial of a two level reduction for the acceptance of responsibility was proper because he defendant did not voluntarily stop his involvement in criminal conduct.  Judgment affirmed.

Gun rights restoration win together with discharge from probation

Gun rights restoration attorney Lynne Torgerson recently achieved an amazing victory in a metro area court.  Her client was on felony probation, after being convicted of a felony.  The original plea agreement provided that if her client performed well on probation, that upon discharge from probation, the Court would restore his gun rights.  Her client did perform very well on probation.  He then brought a motion to be discharged from probation early, and, for restoration of his gun rights.  The State vehemently fought the restoration of gun rights, in opposition to what he had originally been promised.  Ultimately, the Court ordered that Ms. Torgerson’s client be discharged from probation and that his gun rights be restored.  Her client recently received his permit to purchase.  Bravo!  State v. AW.
