Supreme Court of Louisiana.

STATE of Louisiana v. Dustin MANTIA

NO. 2017–KK–0240

Decided: March 31, 2017

The grant of the motion to suppress is hereby reversed and the matter is remanded for further proceedings. We find the stop was not unreasonably prolonged in violation of Rodriguez v. United States, 135 S.Ct. 1609, 191 L.ed.2d 492 (2015). Furthermore, even if the strictest reading of Rodriguez interprets a one-minute delay as an improper extension of the traffic stop, we find the officers had reasonable suspicion to justify the search.



PER CURIAM * FN* Justice Weimer is recused.
