DUI Procedures in National Spotlight Following Virginia Ruling

Comments (0)

Virginia's dismissal of Commonwealth vs. Joseph A. Moses Harris has sparked national attention over DUI arrest procedures.  The debate surrounds the cliché: "does the end justify the means?"  Officers make hundreds of DUI arrests daily and defense attorneys argue different issues in every case.  For defendant Harris, the issue was his Fourth Amendment right against an unreasonable stop.  Chief Justice John Roberts has spoken out against the ruling stating is "grant(s) drunk drivers one free swerve".  Defense attorneys argue it is a crucial victory against "overly zealous" police officers.
