Judica County Episode 103: Pulled Over? What are your rights?
Attorneys Damion L. McCullers and Cameron D. Sullivan join Josh Whitaker to discuss North Carolina law as it pertains to a traffic stop when an officer suspects you may be too intoxicated to drive. Of course, no one advocates driving an automobile under the influence of alcohol or any other drug, but, it is important to know your legal rights when confronted by an officer who suspects you may be under the influence.
Are you legally required to take roadside physical tests? What can the officer legally require of you? Do you have to take the roadside breathalyzer? What are your rights in regards to a search of your automobile? If the officer places you under arrest, what can you expect? Our panel, led by Attorney Damion L. McCullers, a partner with the law firm of McCullers, Whitaker & Hamer, PLLC and a trial attorney with twelve (12) years experience trying DWI/DUI cases in Wake, Johnston & Harnett counties, answers these questions.
Our panel also discusses recent changes in NC law as it pertains to DWI/DUI law. This podcast was recorded in September of 2015
