“Sometimes people associate a drug arrest following a traffic stop, as something where a drug-dog was called to the scene, and there’s a search by that drug-dog. And in the case that there is a drug-dog search of a vehicle, the first thing that we are always going to look at is the detention, and the length of the detention – How long my client was detained for? How long did it take for the K-9 officer to show up? Because if my client was unlawfully detained for a prolonged period of time, that’s possibly an unlawful search.”
