US v. Kelly, No. 08-4982

By FindLaw Staff on January 29, 2010 8:57 AM

Defendant's convictions for conspiracy to distribute and possess drugs and related crimes is affirmed as the automobile exception does not have any exigency requirement apart form the inherent mobility of the automobile, and thus, if the police have probable cause, the justification to conduct a warrantless search does not vanish once the police have established some degree of control over the automobile. Defendant's remaining claims are rejected as without merit.
