Law enforcement errors or mistakes can lead to the reduction or dismissal of a person’s criminal charges.
Common Errors Made By Law Enforcement Include:
Police Officers not having Reasonable Suspicion to make a stop: Before law enforcement officials can make a DWI traffic stop, they must have reasonable suspicion. If law enforcement officials do not have reasonable suspicion, they cannot legally make the DWI traffic stop.
Improper Field Sobriety Tests: Once a person is suspected of intoxicated driving, they may be asked to perform a series of Field Sobriety Tests. These tests must be conducted in a specific manner. It is up to the police officer to determine if the person has passed or failed his/her field sobriety tests. The police officer must closely monitor the person’s balance, coordination, and motor skills while the person performs the test. The way the tests are scored makes it very easy for the officer to give a driver a “failing” score. It is believed that if a person is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, he/she will have poor coordination. There are numerous reasons that have nothing to do with intoxication that could lead to a poor performance on the Field Sobriety Tests. Past injuries, trauma, poor terrain, and poor weather conditions can all be factors in the scoring. A knowledgeable DWI attorney can cut through the myths of these tests.
