United States v. Carloss — F.3d —, 2016 WL 929663 (10th Cir. Mar. 11, 2016)

Mar 11, 2016

On appeal from the denial of a motion to suppress, defendant argued that a “No Trespassing” sign effectively revoked the officer’s implied license to approach the residence for a knock and talk. Evaluating the overall context and the message that would have been communicated to an objective officer or member of the public, the court held the mere presence of a “No Trespassing” sign was not sufficient to convey to an officer that he or she lacked a license to approach and knock on the front door of a residence.
