Challenging The Stop

In order to stop and detain you, a police officer must have a lawful reason for pulling you over in the first place. If you were driving in a normal manner and committing no crime at the time of the stop, it may be possible to challenge the stop and get the charge dismissed.

Challenging probable cause: In order to arrest you for DUI in California, a police officer must have probable cause, in other words, reasonable grounds for making the arrest. If a judge deems a police officer did not have probable cause to make the arrest, all evidence resulting from the arrest may be inadmissible, leaving the state with no case against you.

Challenging blood and breath test evidence is also an important element of a DUI defense case. Defense lawyer Denton Wilson is a former prosecutor who used to use evidence to win convictions. Due to this experience, he is adept at identifying and seizing upon weaknesses in the prosecution's case, including the stop, detention and arrest.
