DUI Motions in Bucks County
A Motion in a Bucks County DUI or Criminal case is a formal request to the Bucks County Common Pleas Court to perform an action in that case. An experienced defensive attorney will usually attempt to prevent certain pieces of evidence from being presented at trial. This type of Motion is called a ‘Suppression Motion’.
Whether your vehicle was stopped by the police improperly, field sobriety tests were incorrectly administered, your blood was drawn in violation of the rules set forth in Birchfield v. North Dakota, or the blood alcohol testing was performed improperly, it may be able possible to keep certain evidence out of court. If this type of evidence is suppressed by the Bucks County Common Pleas Court, it may be possible to automatically win your case. For example, if your attorney wins a Suppression Motion because the local Bucks County police or State Police stopped your vehicle for an improper or illegal reason, all evidence stemming from that illegal traffic stop will be suppressed. In a situation such as this, it would be impossible for the Bucks County District Attorney to prove a DUI case against you.
