Tennessee v. Perry

Motion to Suppress

more+
less-

This is a motion to suppress evidence seized during a traffic stop. The issue is whether the defendant gave a valid consent to search. I am urging the court to adopt the rule from Ohio v. Robinette, 653 N.E. 2d 695 that requires the police to inform the detainee that "You are free to go" prior to asking for permission to search either the person or the vehicle.
