Skillful Handling Of Eluding A Police Officer Charges
When a police officer turns on his or her squad car lights to stop a vehicle, the driver of that vehicle is required to pull over and stop immediately. Unfortunately, some drivers don’t stop because of panic or fear. When these people are caught, they are charged with the original crime. They also face an additional charge that is often more serious than the original charge: fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle. At the Minnesota law firm of Michael L. Samuelson, we can use our more than 30 years of experience to defend against these charges.
Fleeing A Peace Officer In A Motor Vehicle
When a person is stopped for drunk driving or another traffic violation, the temptation to try to escape can become overwhelming. A rash decision is made, and the result is an additional charge: fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle. Unfortunately, this charge can be more serious than the misdemeanor traffic violation that caused the stop in the first place. This charge is considered a felony and comes with serious penalties if convicted.
To avoid becoming a convicted felon, representation from an experienced attorney is crucial. You will find that attorney at our law firm. Attorney Michael L. Samuelson will work with you personally, helping you limit the damage caused by the charges you face.
