What happens if I was pulled over illegally?
When a police officer pulls someone over, they almost always have a reason for why they did so. However, in some cases, the officer will initiate a traffic stop without a "reasonable suspicion" because they believe the suspect has been drinking and driving. If this is the case, it is likely that the DUI charge can be overturned.
The police must have a reason to pull you over, such as weaving, failure to follow traffic rules, or speeding. Without a valid reason, any evidence the officer finds (such as a BAC over .08) will be suppressed and cannot be used against you.
The police must also have probable cause before asking you to take a breath or sobriety test. If they merely smell alcohol on your breath, this is not enough to request an alcohol test.
Without a comprehensive understanding of Colorado's DUI laws, it is easy to believe that the officer who pulled you over did so legally. I can provide the outside perspective you need to successfully fight your charges and get back the future you deserve.
