Johnson v. State

Facts:

Holdings:

            The Maryland Court made the following holding:

  • A valid investigatory stop requires only that the police have specific articulable facts which, taken together with rational inferences from those facts, create reasonable suspicion that the person has been or is about to be involved in criminal conduct. The officer, of course, must be able to articulate something more than an inchoate and unparticularized suspicion or hunch. The level of suspicion necessary to show reasonable suspicion is considerably less than proof of wrongdoing by a preponderance of the evidence. In reviewing the factors that led the agents to stop and question the respondent, it is important to recall that a trained law enforcement agent may be able to perceive and articulate meaning in given conduct which would be wholly innocent to the untrained observer.
  • "Custodial interrogation" occurs under circumstances presumptively constituting unconstitutional compulsion. A mere "stop," unless it escalates into a more significant detention, will presumably be brief, whereas custodial interrogation may frequently be prolonged indefinitely, with the suspect fearing that questioning will continue until he provides his interrogators the answers they seek.
