“When I was arrested by the Feds on Drug Conspiracy charges, they told me I was facing mandatory life in federal prison without the possibility of parole. I knew that I was innocent, but I was scared . . . so I knew that I would have to find a lawyer who was not afraid of the Feds and would take my case to trial. I chose Greg Robey because he is a fighter. After over 2 weeks in a federal jury trial, I was found Not Guilty of all charges. My family and I am forever grateful to Mr. Robey.” -L.B., Mansfield, Ohio
You are driving in your car at night when traffic slows to a crawl. As you lean your head out the window, you see the cause — a police checkpoint. While you have nothing to worry about, you feel a responsibility to warn your fellow drivers. Are you breaking the law if you do?
Apparently you are. In fact, warning other motorists about a police checkpoint is considered interfering with a police operation. Doug “Deo” Odolecki learned this the hard way when he tried to alert oncoming traffic in Parma, Ohio of a DUI checkpoint up the road.
The following are additional details about the case:
Local laws explain that police must notify residents about DUI checkpoints at least a few hours in advance. If you are arrested unjustly or believe your constitutional rights have been violated, do not hesitate in contacting an experienced criminal defense attorney.
