Are there any ways to get out of a DUI?

As someone who is facing a DUI charge, it's a good idea to go over your rights. Your attorney likely has ideas on how to reduce or eliminate the charges against you with a strong defense, but he or she can't help you do so until you give him or her all the information on what happened with your traffic stop.

Here's what to know about a search warrant

If the police suddenly arrive at your home, in person or at your vehicle stating that they have a search warrant, it means that they've obtained permission to search a location or person and to seize anything that is evidence of a crime. The search warrant itself will be addressed to you, as the person who is to be searched or whose property is to be searched.

What is the Fourth Amendment?

The Fourth Amendment is there to protect you against unfair searches and seizures. The Fourth Amendment protects you when you are in a vehicle, walking down the street or in a place where it's reasonable to assume you'll receive privacy. Any items taken from your possession unlawfully are unable to be used against you in a court of law.

Are police roadblocks illegal?

In some senses, it would seem that the Fourth Amendment makes it illegal for the police to use roadblocks. After all, you have a right to avoid searches and seizures without probable cause. Police need a warrant. In most cases, without that, if you are stopped by a police officer and you ask if you're free to go, he or she has to let you go.
