Parties' Statement of Issues

  • Appellant

    Whether the district court erred by denying Mr. Stands’ motion to suppress evidence.

  • Appellee 1

    Whether the district court properly denied Michael Stands’ Motion to Suppress Evidence.


Summary

Michael Lee Stands appeals from a district court order denying his motion to suppress evidence after entering a conditional plea of guilty to possession with intent to manufacture or deliver methamphetamine and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

A Fargo police officer pulled Stands over for failure to stop at a stop sign. The officer searched Stands and discovered drug paraphernalia. A drug canine later arrived on the scene. The canine sniffed and positively alerted on Stands’ vehicle. Officers searched the vehicle and discovered methamphetamine. Stands made a motion to exclude the evidence from the search of his person and his vehicle. The district court denied the motion.

On appeal, Stands argues the searches were illegal and the district court erred when it denied his motion to suppress.
