Northern Kentucky DUI Attorney
Every day in Northern Kentucky, drivers are pulled over unlawfully by police officers. In order to be considered a “legal” police stop, the officer must first have probable cause to believe that you are breaking the law and to pull you over to further investigate the situation. If a police officer does not have a good reason to believe you are breaking the law, it will be considered as violation of your constitutional rights and your case could be dismissed as a result.
If you or a loved one has been pulled over unlawfully by a police officer, and you were then arrested and charged for DUI, a skilled defense lawyer from The Brunk Firm, PLLC will fight to protect your constitutional rights. In order for your case to be successful, your attorney will have to prove that the stop was unwarranted and the officer violated your rights by pulling you over. When you hire a lawyer from our firm to defend you, they will do everything possible to try to prove this point.
When an Unconstitutional Police Stop Results in a DUI Arrest
In order for a police stop to be considered lawful, the officer must observe erratic driving behavior that could be indicative of the driver being under the influence of alcohol or drugs before they pull the person over. If observed, the following behaviors may give the officer reasonable cause to pull you over:
Driving too Slowly
Disobeying Traffic Laws, Signs, or Lights
Weaving Within or Between Lanes
Failing to Turn on Headlights after Dark
