People v. Dean, A115164

Conviction based on no contest plea to drug and weapons-related charges is reversed where, in opposing defendant's suppression motion, the prosecution failed to meet its burden of proving that there was an articulable and reasonable suspicion that defendant committed a traffic violation based on the facts and circumstances known to the officer at the time of the traffic stop.
