No Probable Cause to Stop Vehicle
Kansas City DUI Defense Lawyer Handling Cases in Kansas & Missouri
The U.S. Constitution has provisions that are meant to protect the rights
of the American people. One of these provisions, the 4th Amendment, protects
against unreasonable search and seizure. Because of this right, law enforcement
officers are only allowed to pull drivers over in
DUI stops when they have enough probable cause or reasonable grounds for believing
that a person has broken the law. For example, it may be okay to pull
a driver over if that individual made a traffic violation or exhibited
common signs of DUI (such as swerving in an out of lanes). However, it
is not okay to pull someone over simply because of a hunch by the officer
or because the person in the vehicle is driving away from a bar or liquor store.
Any stops that are not based on probable cause or reasonable suspicion
are determined illegal police stops. If you were subject to this type
of stop, your
DUI arrest might have been illegal as well. At Paul W. Burmaster P.A., we have a
