Unlawful Newer Seizure/Warrantless Entry/Prolonged Rodriguez Stop 

Unlawful Seizure under Newer

Our client's vehicle was stopped after officer ran the vehicle license plate and learned that client was revoked.  Client was married, however, raising a challenge to the stop.  Johansen Law Office, S.C. successfully brought a motion under State v. Newer ultimately leading to suppression of the evidence and a dismissal of the case. 

Warrantless Entry Into Home/Dismissed


While looking for a suspect, law enforcement officers made a warrantless entry into client's home over client's vocal objections.  Johansen Law Office, S.C. filed a motion to suppress based on unlawful warrantless entry which ultimately lead to a dismissal of the case.

Unconstitutional Rodriguez Search

Law enforcement initiated a traffic stop of client based on a traffic violation. The officer then prolonged the stop so another officer could conduct a free air K9 sniff. Johansen Law Office, S.C. brought a Rodriguez motion arguing the traffic stop was unlawfully prolonged to conduct the K9 sniff. The court agreed, granted the motion, and ultimately dismissed the case.
