Lancaster County, District Judge Robert R. Otte

Attorney for Appellant:  Matthew K Kosmicki (Brennan & Nielsen)

Attorney for Appellee:  Douglas J. Peterson, Nathan A Liss (Attorney General’s Office)

Criminal Action:  Possession of a controlled substance; Possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person.

Assignments of Error on Appeal:  On appeal, Shiffermiller assigns that the district court erred in overruling his motion to suppress because (1) the police department exceeded the permissible scope and duration of a Terry stop, and (2) the warrantless search of his person violated the Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution.
