The Fruit of the Poisonous Tree Doctrine
“Hi, this is attorney Kevin Hayslett, and the topic is understanding the fruits of the poisonous tree doctrine. If you have been arrested for a DUI or DWI that resulted from a traffic stop or a search, the fruits of the poisonous tree doctrine may apply in your case. For example:
? If there is no legal or constitutional basis for your traffic stop
? And a judge makes that determination even though you have blown higher than the legal limit on the intoxilyzer
? That will result in a dismissal of your case.
Under the fruits of the poisonous tree doctrine, after an illegal or unconstitutional traffic stop or search, anything after that in a criminal case will be excluded under the fruits of the poisonous tree.”
