Case Date: 12/02/2015
Citation: United States v. Joyner, CASE NO: 2:15-cr-29-FtM-29MRM, 2015 WL 7752874 (M.D. Fla. Dec. 2, 2015)
Court Type: Federal District
Court: Middle District of Florida (M.D. Fla.)
Judge: Federal District Judge: John E. Steele
Rule(s): 4th Amendment

Defendant moved to suppress evidence found during a traffic stop. The issue was whether the initial traffic stop and subsequent search and inventory of the vehicle violated Defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights.


The Court denied Defendant’s motion to suppress. Defendant was lawfully stopped for violating traffic laws, and the subsequent arrest for driving on a suspended license allowed authorities to search and inventory Defendant’s vehicle. Defendant’s belongings were then impounded, and a Judge granted a search warrant with sufficient particularity to look through various suspicious belongings. Therefore, there was no violation of Defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights.
