Marshall County OWI Dismissed and License Saved

posted by Matthew Lindholm on Friday, April 14, 2017

Marshall County Iowa.  Client was stopped for failure to yeild to oncomming traffic and was eventually arrested for OWI first offense.  Upon a review of the video, it became clear the Client stopped his vehicle before entering the intersection and gave the approaching police officer an opportunity to go through the intersection.  However, when the officer failed to continue through the intersection, the Client proceeded through the intersection and was ultimately stopped.  A motion to suppress was filed challenging the constitutionality of the stop and the Court ultimately ruled that all evidence obtained was inadmissible because the officer did not have a constitutional basis to stop the Client's vehicle.  As a result, the OWI charge was dismissed and the Client's commerical and non-commercial driver's license were saved.
