Challenging the State’s Evidence

The government must be able to demonstrate a lawful basis to stop and detain you to conduct a criminal DUI investigation. The United States Constitution guarantees that people be free from illegal police conduct. This includes illegal traffic stops, searches and interrogation. I can file pretrial motions to suppress and exclude any illegally collected evidence including police officer observations, field sobriety exercises and breath test results. Important questions that should be answered in any Seminole County DUI case to determine if the police acted lawfully are:

  • Were you stopped and detained for a lawful reason?
  • Were there any witnesses to this? Is there any video evidence of this incident?
  • Were you read your Miranda rights? Were any of your statements illegally obtained?
  • Is there evidence that collaborates the police officers opinion? Is the officer an expert?
  • Did you preform field sobriety tests? Did the officer let you practice or give you written instructions?
  • Is there a lack of evidence or a conflict in the evidence?
