Commonwealth v. Jefferson

Pennsylvania Superior Court

June 7, 2021

Jefferson appealed the denial of his suppression motion. He argued that the police lacked reasonable suspicion to stop his vehicle based solely on the inference that the registered owner of the vehicle, who had an outstanding warrant, would be found in the vehicle. An en banc panel of the Pennsylvania Superior Court affirmed and based its decision on the United States Supreme Court’s recent decision in Kansas v. Glover. The Superior Court also ruled that the Fourth Amendment standard established in Glover is coextensive with Article I, Section 8 of the Pennsylvania Constitution.
