The Ohio Supreme Court held that an extraterritorial search, prohibited by RC 4513.39, can violate the Ohio Constitution’s provision against search and seizures, Ohio Constitution, Art. I, Section 14, even though the search did not violate the U.S. Constitution as there was probable cause for the search.  See CourtNewsOhio, Officer Had No Authority to Make Traffic Stop Outside Jurisdiction .  The case is State v. Brown, Slip Opinion No. 2015-Ohio-2438.
