Follow Attorney McCoppin on Snapchat for "almost" daily legal advice
Andrew McCoppin has given more advice regarding the legal definitions of terminology regarding the Driving While Impaired laws, via the SnapChat live app. Some of those definitions include:
At a DWI trial, an officer does not need to prove he had "reasonable suspicion" to stop a driver at a lawful DWI ROADBLOCK. A lawful DWI roadblock must be approved by the local police department, have a written plan establishing procedures, be marked with signs, be applied to every driver, comply with the law, and give no discretion to the officer. If the court finds the checkpoint unlawful, the judge should suppress all remaining evidence as illegally seized and the case should be dismissed. Officers may stop a driver for avoiding a lawful checkpoint.
