CASE ENTRY

Martinez-Camacho v. State

Two men are driving through rural Alabama from Atlanta to Dallas. One is carrying $52.5k in the truck. After issuing a warning for speeding, officers give him the business. No drugs, no guns. Can the state forfeit the money based on no evidence but a dog alert? Certainly not, says an Alabama court of appeals.
