Unlawful Police Stops
Police officers must follow certain rules and regulations when it comes
to police stops. The officer must have witnessed signs of intoxication
– such as drifting over lane lines or driving at night without headlights
– or the officer must have been tipped off by a third-party witness.
You have a valid reason to fight your DWI if your arresting officer pulled
you over without having any reason to suspect that you were intoxicated
or committing any other traffic offense.
You could also fight your DWI based on a mistake (or more than one) made
by your arresting officer. This mistake could be made when the officer
is conducting a field sobriety test, or when they administer a breath
or blood test. These tests must be conducted correctly in order to guarantee
Breath & Blood Test Errors
Breathalyzer machines are very sensitive and require proper calibration
every single time they are used. Did your arresting officer calibrate
the machine correctly? Did the officer instruct you thoroughly on how
to blow into the Breathalyzer before you did so? If not, your breath test
could have been a false positive for DWI. Blood samples can also be mishandled
in the lab, or the test machine could be faulty. Our firm can help you
determine whether or not your test results are valid.
