Upcoming DMV hearing for a DUI charge.
My atty has submitted a motion to suppress all evidence hearing. I was not witnessed driving by anyone. The cop arrived at the store's parking lot after a call from the store. I was standing outside in the parking lot. The motion says that the cop lacked the necessary reasonable and articulable suspicion to stop and arrest me and the cop did not witness any erratic driving. The atty also wrote that the arrest was illegal and that my 4th amendment rights were violated. I was supposed to have the suppression hearing the other day but it got continued. Should I submit parts of this motion during my DMV hearing?
No. It's called snatching defeat out of the jaws of victory. As a non-lawyer, you may miss out on the long term defense...
