Unlawful Police Stops
If you have been charged with a DUI or a DUID do you still have constitutional rights? Of course you do! Furthermore, if it is discovered that the arresting officer pulled you over or searched your car without probable cause, your DUI attorney can have the charges against you dismissed because an illegal stop constitutes a violation of your constitutional rights!
In order for the stop to be considered justified and legal, the officer must observe driving behavior that is not considered “normal.” Some examples of a this would be, but are not limited to, if the officer sees you speeding or going too slow, if the officer sees you swerving or driving erratically, if the officer sees that you failed to stop at a red light or stop sign, if the officer sees you driving without your headlights on and if the officer sees you swerving in and out of lanes.
Every citizen deserves to be treated lawfully and with their constitutional rights intact. Contact the Law Offices of Ali Komaili if your DUI or DUID was the result of an Unlawful Stop in Orange County.
