What an Experienced Criminal Defense Attorney Can Do For You

There are numerous widely accepted sources of probable cause to arrest. Some of those include:

  1. Crime in the Officer’s Presence: an officer can always arrest a person for a crime committed in the officer’s presence, no matter how minor the crime. Atwater v. City of Lago Vista, 532 U.S. 318 (2001);
  2. Arrest Warrant: with an arrest warrant, the judge has already determined that there is probable cause for an arrest;
  3. Informants: the officer must have a basis for the truthfulness of the informant’s statement. Illinois v. Gates U.S. 213 (1983);
  4. Crime Observed by Another Officer: an officer may rely on information received from a fellow officer in determining probable cause to arrest.
