OWI dismissed based on bad traffic stop
On February 2, 2018, Madison WI criminal defense attorney Mark Eisenberg was successful in suppressing a first OWI offense based on a bad traffic stop. The State argued that the police officer had a valid reason to stop the vehicle. Mark Eisenberg argued that there was no probable cause under the law to stop the vehicle, and further the officer lacked reasonable suspicion to make a traffic stop. The trial court agreed and suppressed the evidence. The case was then dismissed.
