Our team of Utah Criminal Attorneys will fight for you in often prejudicial system. We receive numerous calls every week from individuals charged in Sevier County with a serious drug or alcohol charge after a minor traffic stop. A major highway route runs through this county in which many people travel each year between California and Colorado. It seems the Utah Highway Patrol on I-70 and other highways throughout the state of Utah pull over many travelers from California and Colorado. In some cases, the reason a person is pulled over may be suspect. Everyone knows the marijuana laws in California and Colorado are far more relaxed and highway patrolmen may pull over suspected drivers believing for one reason or another they may find marijuana in the vehicle. We call this a pretext stop and you have rights against such conduct by law enforcement.
In many cases, the arresting officer or trooper does not have probably cause to make a stop or to do a search of a vehicle. In these cases, we can often have evidence suppressed and sometimes the case dismissed all together. If you feel you were pulled over just because you were a resident of a “marijuana state,” or that the officer though you were a “pot head,” you should call 801.618.1334.

This is especially helpful for out of state residents who were cited while only passing through the area and cannot come back to Richfield for a hearing.
