Unlawful Police Stops in GA

The Paulding County Defense Attorneys at Henrickson & Sereebutra are Here For You

If you were charged and arrested for a crime such as a DUI after being unlawfully stopped by a law enforcement officer, you may be able to fight the charges made against you with the help of our Paulding County DUI lawyers. Thanks to the Fourth Amendment in the U.S. Constitution, all Americans are protected from being stopped or searched unless there is a probable cause or reasonable and articulable suspicion to do so.

This means that if a law enforcement official stops you unlawfully, they have violated your constitutional rights, which could result in a dismissal of any charges made against you.

What is Probable Cause?

Probable cause refers to any indication that may make a person believe that you are breaking the law. A law enforcement officer cannot legally pull you over at random, or for leaving a bar or restaurant late at night without having a valid reason to do so.

Some driving behaviors that could give a law enforcement officer probable cause to stop you include:

  • Disobeying traffic laws
  • Speeding
  • Weaving between lanes
  • Reckless driving
  • Driving too slowly
  • Breaking erratically

Protect Your Constitutional Rights

If you suspect that your DUI charges were made during an unlawful police stop, you may be able to clear yourself of any of the charges made against you. Proving that your constitutional rights were violated during an unlawful police stop requires the skilled and experienced representation from our Paulding County DUI defense attorneys.

Your rights and driving privileges are on the line. Protect your rights by hiring Henrickson & Sereebutra to handle your unlawful police stop case. With our legal guidance and in-depth knowledge of DUI law, your case could be dropped altogether if we can prove that the stop that incriminated you was unlawful in the first place.
