Unlawful Police Stops in Orange County

Every day in Orange County, 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. Laws for lawful police arrests are listed in §836 of the California Penal Code. 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 for DUI, the Law Offices of Virginia L. Landry can fight to protect your 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 Unlawful 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:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless Driving
  • Swerving
  • Driving too Slowly
  • Disobeying Traffic Laws, Signs, or Lights
  • Weaving Within or Between Lanes
  • Failing to Turn on Headlights after Dark

If you feel that your constitutional rights were violated because a police officer pulled you over unreasonably, and you are now facing DUI charges as a result, you need to speak to one of our attorneys to find out what can be done to resolve your predicament. Attorney Virginia L. Landry could take measures to thoroughly investigate the facts surrounding your case in an effort to prove that the officer did not have reasonable cause to stop you for drunk driving, which could possibly result in the dismissal of your DUI charges.
