Omaha Lawyer for Illegal DUI Stops

Defending Your Rights in DUI Stops

In the moment, when being pulled over for DUI, most people are intimidated, so they feel like there is no practical protection of their rights against illegal stops. It is important to know that you have rights. The police are not allowed to stop you for no reason, and we could be able to get your case thrown out, or at least minimize the sentence or find alternative sentencing.

Omaha attorney for illegal DUI stops, John K. Green, brings more than 30 years of experience defending clients in Nebraska against illegal DUI stops. At the law office of John K. Green, Attorney at Law, we will give you the personalized attention that your case requires, helping you minimize the negative impact that DUI charges could have on your life.

Reasonable Suspicion

One of the most important aspects of DUI defense involves the initial stop. If the stop was illegal in the first place, all of the evidence garnered by the police as a result of that stop can be nullified. Without that evidence, the state does not have enough to prosecute, and the case can be dismissed. The standard for DUI stops is reasonable suspicion. There is significant room for debate involved in the issues surrounding this concept of reasonable suspicion:

  • Traffic violation or criminal act: Generally, the police cannot make a DUI stop unless there is a traffic violation or criminal act of some kind. In many cases, the traffic violation can be something extremely simple and common for most drivers. All that is required is the simplest of traffic violations for the stop to be legal.
  • Good faith belief: In some cases, even if there was no actual traffic violation or criminal act, the police officer's good faith belief can override a showing of an otherwise illegal DUI stop.
  • Checkpoints: Although checkpoints are legal, there are strict rules and limitations on time, place and approach to these checkpoints.

We use our more than 30 years of experience to break down the facts surrounding the DUI stop. If there is a problem with the stop, we will help you find it and help you get the best results possible in your case.
