Police Officers Really Do Lie About DUI

In my many years as a Pennsylvania DUI Attorney defending the rights of those accused, I have seen many, many cases of police officers “fudging” or “shading” the truth and even outright lying. This is one of the main reasons why anyone who is accused of a DUI should have an experienced PA DUI lawyer fully examine the facts of their case.

Apparently police officers have no problems with lying in DUI cases.

Apparently police officers have no problems with lying in DUI cases.

Take for example a recent scandal in Georgia where a police officer falsified DUI readings:

The forced resignation of a deputy assigned to the DUI task force could affect the prosecution of hundreds of cases, according to those in the legal community.

Erik Norman faced mandatory resignation from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office on Oct. 19 after a prosecutor reported that Norman told her he had falsified readings from a hand-held alcohol-testing device.

Unfortunately, police corruption happens all over the country and Pennsylvania is no less a victim than any other state.  The same problems of lack of transparency and oversight as well as the absence of criminal prosecution for these offenders creates an environment where “a little lie here and there” becomes the rule rather than the exception or that “the ends justify the means.”

If you or a loved one is arrested for a Pennsylvania DUI violation, you should have an experienced PA DUI attorney examine the evidence against you to determine whether it is real or a fabrication by the police.  For a free consultation please call 1-866-MCSHANE.

    They absolutely will lie in Northampton County, PA. They will manipulate stop times to make it appear that they got you to the DUI center and your blood drawn 10 minutes before the 2 hour time limit instead of at 2 1/2 hours. They will also edit Dash Cam Video to leave out the first part where they are telling you that you will lose your license if you don’t do the FST. The DUI center will also use vials that you can’t find the Quality Control Certificate on as well. In other words – they will do anything to convict you legal or illegal and then brag about how much money they make to the newspaper.
