Can Traffic Stop Outside Officer's Jurisdiction Result in Exclusion of Evidence?
State of Ohio v. Terrence Brown, Case no. 2014-0104
Sixth District Court of Appeals (Wood County)
Editor's Note: While the appellate court's decision and, subsequently, the Supreme Court's docket, spell the appellee's name as "Terrance," both briefs filed in the case use "Terrence."
ISSUE: Does the exclusionary rule apply when a traffic stop and subsequent arrest were made outside of the officer's jurisdiction and in violation of a state statute?
