Kanas What Are the Three Elements Fundamental Aspects of Crime Questions

Part 1A


Review the following cases Brendin v. California Link (Links to an external site.), Hiibel v. Nevada Link (Links to an external site.) and Arizona v. Johnson Link. (Links to an external site.)Focus on vehicle passengers detention, reasonable suspicion and identification requirements. Review the following scenario then discuss the questions.

You are an officer on routine patrol and observe a vehicle with an air freshener hanging from the rear view mirror. You determine it is violation of the vehicle code and make a traffic stop. You approach the vehicle and observe the driver and male passenger in the front seat, and two female passengers in the back seat. Additionally, you smell the odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from the vehicle, however the driver is not under the influence. Both male occupants appear to be in their late 20’s, however in your opinion both female occupants appear to be under 21. You obtain the driver’s identification based on the vehicle code violation (probable cause), and you demand all three passengers provide their identification.

Based on your readings of case law, discuss the following questions;

1. Are the passengers considered seized(not free to leave) during a traffic stop? Explain.

2. Would the officer be allowed (4th Amendment) to demand identification from none, all or just some of the passenger?
