    Motion to Suppress in YOungstown

    When you are stopped by a police officer in Ohio, it should be legal or otherwise your lawyer can use this opportunity for dismissal of the charges against you. Often Youngstown Criminal Lawyer questions the police about whether they actually have the right to stop in Cincinnati for OVI charges in Ohio. If you are stopped for violating traffic rules, then under the 4th and 14th Amendments, it will be deemed as a seizure under Ohio Case Law. Hence, while stopping you, the police officer must meet the right legal standards.

    Often due to the unlawful stops, the offender can get benefitted from the complete dismissal of the charges against him. This can happen to you too. If you have been charged with an Ohio OVI case with an unlawful stop, then Youngstown OVI Lawyer can help you get your all charges dismissed. For this legal assistance, you need to come to us at Youngstown Criminal Law Group.

    Why the Vehicle will be stopped?

    When an officer is stopping a vehicle, he or she should be able to articulate reasonable suspicion for unlawful activities in the vehicle. This standard will be only judged by the court, keeping all the circumstantial evidence in mind.

    Hence, you need to keep in mind that if the officer sees a traffic violation, only then the stop will be deemed to be justified. If there is no criminal suspicion or activity, then stopping your vehicle will be deemed illegal in Ohio.

    Relevance With Ohio OVI Case

    Hence, you need to connect with Youngstown OVI Lawyer so that it can be analyzed and assessed why the officer asked you to pull over. If after analysis, the lawyer finds out a window, the Motion of Suppress can be filed questioning the legality of the stop. The Youngstown Criminal Lawyer will also question the legality of the standardized field sobriety test and whether it is administered with all compliance with the National Highway Safety Administration Manual. This will determine if the State can order your arrest.

    The lawyer will aggressively interrogate the police to establish that the officer did not see anything unlawful while stopping your vehicle and the decision was completely based on a hunch. And the Ohio Court doesn’t consider a hunch to be justified enough to stop a motor vehicle.

    Additionally, the Youngstown Criminal Lawyer can also challenge the chemical test, breath, blood or urine, which has not been conducted in complete compliance with the Ohio Department of Health Guidelines or Ohio Administrative Core Guidelines.
