Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Defendant's firearm possession conviction is affirmed where the district court properly denied defendant's motion to suppress evidence because: 1) the use of handcuffs by the police was reasonable under the circumstances, coming as it did after the discovery of a controlled substance; 2) the search of defendant's person was reasonable under the circumstances; and 3) the officers had good reason to detain defendant pending further investigation.
