Legal Question

Asked on: 2/14/11, 4:20 pm

I was arrested for oui. The police officer responded to an anonymous 911 call but I know they still needed probable cause to pull me over. They used number one on the hit parade - marked lanes violation. The police report says I crossed JUST over the yellow line. It seems to me a halfway decent lawyer could discredit this, especially since they were observing from the right side of my car and the yellow line was on the left. This is my first oui and I keep hearing that it's customary to take a cwof. If I can win though I'd like to take it to trial but I don't want to end up kicking myself if I end up with a conviction on my hands. I know no one can predict the outcome of a trial, but I need to know if this is as much of a no brainer as i think. Also, is it possible this could be supressed and if so before trial? I say before trial because during the trial I would guess I've lost my option to cwof. By the way, is supressed the right term to use and when is it likely to be done. Thank you very much for your help with all these questions!
