Unlawful Police Stops

DUI Lawyer in Los AngelesWere You Arrested During an Unlawful Police Stop?

If you are driving along the street and are not doing anything unlawful or erratic, the police cannot legitimately pull you over for no apparent reason. In any police stop situation, law enforcement must have probable cause to pull you over. What is probable cause? In the criminal justice system, probable cause refers to facts or evidence that would make a reasonable person believe that a crime or wrongdoing is or was being committed. An experienced officer may state in his report that he felt justified in pulling you over due to weaving or speeding, reckless driving, no headlights, or some other unlawful act.

If this was not the case, however, the officer has violated your constitutional rights. If there is anything that can be disputed about how and why the officer stopped you, this can all be used in court as a defense to fight your DUI charges. If you or someone you know is facing what you feel is an unwarranted police stop that resulted in DUI charges, contact a Los Angeles DUI attorney at the Kraut Law Group.

I hired Attorney Mike Kraut and I'm am so happy and grateful that I did! I was arrested for a DUI because my BAC level was over the .08 limit. I ended up getting a wet and reckless instead of a DUI. I still have to do some classes and I'm on probation, but I do not have a DUI on my record. If you have a DUI hire Attorney Kraut, he definitely knows his stuff!
