OWI First Offense Dismissed and License Saved

posted by Matthew Lindholm on Thursday, November 20, 2014

Wright County, Iowa.  Client's operating while intoxicated first offense charge was dismissed after it was successfully argued in a pretrial motion to suppress that the officer lacked sufficient probable cause or reasonable suspicion in order to stop the client's vehicle.  As a result of the unconstitutional stop, all evidence obtained following the stop of the vehicle was determined to be inadmissible at trial and the charge was dismissed.  The successful motion to suppress also allowed the client's license to be saved.
