US v. Thompson, 13-1874

Denial of the motion to suppress is affirmed in part and reversed in part, and defendant's conviction is thus vacated and remanded, where: 1) the fruits of the traffic stop search were properly allowed, as the officer at the traffic stop had a "reasonable, articulable suspicion" to believe that defendant was engaged in illegal activity, and to extend defendant's traffic stop to include a K-9 search; and 2) the district court erred in failing to suppress certain statements defendant made while in custody prior to being presented to a magistrate judge, specifically, his confession, as the delay of presentment was unreasonable.
