United States v. Saulsberry, 878 F.3d 946 (10th Cir. Dec. 28, 2017).
Dec 28, 2017
The defendant conditionally pled guilty to possession of unauthorized credit cards with intent to defraud. Reversing the denial of the motion to suppress, the Tenth Circuit held that an officer unreasonably expanded the scope of an otherwise permissible traffic stop when the officer took credit cards out of the defendant’s bag and examined them without probable cause to support a credit-card offense.
