Orlando DUI Lawyers
Unlawful Police Stops
In order to legally pull over a driver for suspected drunk driving, an officer must have probable cause. Probable cause in this case is defined as a sufficient reason to believe that illegal activity is occurring, not just a “hunch” or suspicion. The officer should have observed actual signs that indicate intoxication. Swerving, speeding, driving too slowly and disobeying a traffic law are all reasons that an officer may pull over a driver for DUI.
At Finebloom & Haenel, our Orlando DUI attorneys are experienced in defending the rights of clients who have been subjected to unlawful police stops. We know what to look for in these cases and how to prove that an officer did not have probable cause to make the initial stop. This can have a significant impact on the outcome of your case, particularly if it puts the officer’s performance or motives in question.
