United States of America v. Dwight W. Robinson, Appellant, 946 F.2d 1567 (D.C. Cir. 1991)Annotate this Case
Appeal from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, No. CR-88-00332-01; Flannery, J.
Before RUTH BADER GINSBURG, D.H. GINSBURG and HENDERSON, Circuit Judges.
This appeal was considered on the record from the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and on the briefs filed by the parties. The court has determined that the issues presented occasion no need for a published opinion. See D.C. Cir. Rule 14(c). It is
ORDERED AND ADJUDGED that appellant's conviction be affirmed. The police officers' conduct prior to Robinson's arrest did not constitute a seizure. See United States v. Maragh, 894 F.2d 415 (D.C. Cir.), cert. denied, 111 S. Ct. 214 (1990). For the reasons stated by the district court at the July 13, 1990 suppression hearing, there was probable cause to arrest Robinson. The search of his tote bag was, therefore, lawful. See United States v. Brown, 671 F.2d 585, 586 (D.C. Cir. 1982).
The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein until seven days after disposition of any timely petition for rehearing. See D.C. Cir. Rule 15.
