Law 101: What to Do When Pulled Over by Police

Eric R. Hunt, Attorney, Axley Brynelson, LLP

Date and Time: Aug 13, 2015 ( 4:00 PM)
Location: Orchard room (3280) at the Wisconsin Institute for Discovery Building

Abstract:

Traffic stops are the most common contact that people will have with police. Most traffic stops are routine and end in either a warning or some form of citation for a traffic violation. However, a significant percentage of criminal charges arise out of what begins as a routine traffic stop. Officers who are suspicious of criminal activity may ask to search the vehicle, ask incriminating questions, and arrest you for a crime the officer knew nothing about when he or she first made the traffic stop. Yet many people, including students, faculty, and professionals, don’t fully understand their rights in these circumstances. At this SILO talk, Madison attorney Eric Hunt will break down the basics on traffic stop rights.
