State v. Baesler

Nos. 20120295 & 20120296

Per Curiam.

1] Lowell Baesler appeals from a district court judgment entered after he conditionally pled guilty to possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. On appeal, Baesler argues law enforcement did not have reasonable suspicion to detain him after the initial reason for the investigative stop ended; therefore, the drug dog's alert to narcotics could not be used to establish probable cause to search his vehicle. We summarily affirm under N.D.R.App.P. 35.1(a)(2).

2] Gerald W. VandeWalle, C.J.
Carol Ronning Kapsner
Mary Muehlen Maring
Daniel J. Crothers
John C. McClintock, Jr., D.J.

3] The Honorable John C. McClintock, Jr., D.J., sitting in place of Sandstrom, J., disqualified.
