Driving Under the Influence DISMISSED due to Illegal Traffic Stop

Our lawyers represented a client who was arrested for DUI by a Hanover Deputy Sheriff. The Deputy Sheriff became suspicious of our client after he made various legal turns over a few miles of driving. The Deputy Sheriff also believed our client’s rear license plate bracket obstructed the license plate. Our client later provided a breath sample at the station. The breath test result indicated a blood alcohol content of 0.16. The primary defense was that the traffic stop was not lawful. The Judge agreed. Case dismissed.
