Bad Police Conduct in the US

February 5, 2023

Anyone who was pulled over or approached by police knows how terrifying it is to face a police investigation. In the context of a traffic stop, a routine encounter can turn into a DUI investigation that can result in the suspension of a driver’s license and jail.

Here are also specific PC 1473.7 case laws in which a plea form (or court advisement of deportation) was present and a motion […]
