Two men were arrested at an Escondido checkpoint for failing to comply with police officers’ orders. Isaac Blumberg to handle the appeal.
Practice Area: Criminal Defense
Outcome: Under Appeal
Description: Via the North County Times
Police officers broke the window of the car the men were in after officers told them to roll down their window at the checkpoint and the driver, Angel Navarrete, would only roll it down about 2 inches.
Lawyers for Navarrete and his passenger, Daniel Alfaro, argued that police violated their clients’ constitutional rights by detaining them without reason. But San Diego Superior Court Judge K. Michael Kirkman disagreed and found the two guilty of resisting a police officer.
