Criminal Practice – Search & Seizure – Motion to Suppress – Traffic Stop – Reasonable Suspicion – Estimation of Speed (access required)

State v. Royster A motion to suppress a traffic stop is properly denied where a police officer had reasonable articulable suspicion for the stop based on the officer’s reasonable estimate of the accused’s speed, and where the officer had sufficient evidence to identify the driver. The order need not be written where the rationale is expressed at trial from the bench.
