What You Can Expect After An Arrest
One of the most crucial parts of your case is the arrest process. We will carefully examine the arresting law enforcement’s actions, review how the sobriety test was conducted, and determine if any mistakes or questionable conduct occurred during the process.
If we can prove that there was a violation of your rights, we may be able to get the charges dropped or have your case entirely thrown out. There are specific steps that law enforcement must take before arresting you, and these procedures must be respected at all times.
In order to make a legal arrest, the officer must have:
- Had probable cause to pull you over
- Cause to request a breathalyzer test
- Read you your Miranda Rights
- Correctly administered the breathalyzer test
- Witnessed a criminal level BAC (.08) on the breathalyzer test
