Common Errors Law Enforcement Officers Make
In some cases, 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:
Not Having Sufficient Probable Cause: Before law enforcement officials can make a DUI traffic stop, they must
have sufficient probable cause as defined in the
California Penal Code §836(a). If law enforcement officials do not have sufficient probable cause, they
cannot legally make the DUI traffic stop.
Failure to Read Miranda Rights: In some cases, a police officer may fail to read a driver his/her
Miranda Rights before placing the person under arrest. Miranda Rights are read to inform
the person of his/her right to remain silent, right to an attorney, and
right to have an attorney appointed to him/her. If the officer does not
read the driver his/her Miranda Rights, anything the driver said before
his/her arrest may not be admissible in court.
Inaccurate Field Sobriety Test Results: After a person is suspected of drunk driving, he/she may be asked to perform
a series of
field sobriety tests for the police officer. 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. It is believed that
if a person is under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol, he/she will
have poor coordination. However, a person can perform poorly during the
field sobriety tests for many reasons other than being intoxicated. Some
of these reasons may include: slippery road conditions, poor lighting,
poor instructions, and medical conditions that impair the person’s
