Are you facing drunk driving charges? Louisiana law does not look kindly on DWI offenders, and whether it's your first offense or you have a criminal record, you would be wise to start working on your defense strategy as soon as possible. One of the first steps of this process is to examine the grounds of the original DWI traffic stop.
Police can make traffic stops for suspected drunk driving only in certain circumstances. There must be a valid reason to pull over a driver, called reasonable suspicion. Without it, a traffic stop may be invalid, and it can compromise the entire case against the accused. It is in your interests to carefully review the circumstances of your arrest as part of your defense strategy.
