Sobriety Checkpoints and DUI in El Cajon

If you or someone you know has been stopped at a sobriety checkpoint and it resulted in receiving a DUI contact an El Cajon DUI lawyer at DUI Crew immediately. With so much controversy over the constitutionality of sobriety checkpoints, these types of cases can be and are often fought with success. The Fourth Amendment of the United States Constitution states that there must be a probable cause for any law enforcement official or a police officer to have the right to search you or your belongings and seize any evidence of a crime that has taken place. This is a very important right and when it is violated before any criminal charge, a knowledgeable attorney can get the charges dismissed.

It is possible for sobriety checkpoints to violate other rights as well. When law enforcement officials or a police officer targets certain demographics or minorities, whether it is on purpose or not, this can also violate your rights.
