United States v. Garza, No. 12-40530 (5th Cir. 2013)Annotate this Case
Defendant conditionally plead guilty to transporting aliens within the United States for private financial gain. On appeal, defendant challenged the district court's denial of his motion to suppress evidence seized as a result of a traffic stop. The court concluded that, under the circumstances, considered in connection with the Brignoni-Ponce factors, the border patrol agent had reasonable suspicion to stop defendant's truck. Accordingly, the court affirmed the judgment of the district court.
