The roadside stop is the initial component of the police encounter. If proper police procedures were not followed, evidence may be excluded or your case may be dismissed. Common errors in police procedure that can strengthen a DWI defense include being stopped without probable cause, illegal searches during the encounter, failure to properly document the encounter, questioning after asking for an attorney, and many more. Jee Law will search for errors in the police procedure of your roadside stop to strengthen your defense.
Field Sobriety Tests
Field sobriety tests are often used by police to determine whether or not an individual is intoxicated at the time of detainment. Sobriety test results can be subjective. If challenged, the results may be deemed unreliable. If proper field sobriety procedures were not followed by the officer administering the tests, the results may be inadmissible in court. Jee Law will challenge the results and search for errors in the police procedure of the field sobriety tests to ensure justice.
Blood alcohol and breath tests are used by police during detainment or after arrest to determine an individual's Blood Alcohol Concentration. In most cases, you have a right to refuse either or both of these tests. If blood/breath testing are refused but still administered without a warrant, the results may not be admissible in court. Additionally, if proper police procedure was not followed, the results may be inadmissible and your case may be dismissed. Jee Law will fight any chemical test results to obtain the most favorable outcome in your case.
