State v. Lelm
- State of North Dakota, Plaintiff and Appellant
Nicholas Dean Lelm, Defendant and Appellee
- Case Type
- CRIMINAL APPEAL : DRUGS/CONTRABAND
- Appeal From
Case No. 2019-CR-00881
South Central Judicial District, Morton County
Pamela Ann Nesvig
The State bears the burden to prove a warrantless search falls within an exception to the warrant requirement.
The automobile exception allows law enforcement to search a vehicle for illegal contraband without a warrant when probable cause exists.
The search incident to arrest exception is limited to searches that implicate interests in protecting officer safety and evidence preservation.
The inevitable discovery doctrine allows evidence obtained during an unlawful search to be admissible where it is shown that the evidence would have been gained even without the unlawful action.
