Best Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Attorney: On May 8, 2015, Jerramy Stevens began his 30 days jail sentence in Manhattan Beach, CaliforniaStevens is a former football player in the National Football League.  Stevens is also married to Hope Solo, a member of the Team USA soccer team.  Stevens was operating a Team USA van when he was arrested for DUI.

Best Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Attorney: The Court also placed Stevens on four years of probation with the condition that he enter and successfully complete two years of alcohol outpatient treatment in Washington State.  Stevens may have earned additional penalties for his conduct during his arrest when he and his wife, Solo, attempted to use their celebrity to gain release.  Stevens would have been much better off asserting his constitutional rights to counsel and against self-incrimination.  Stevens eventually registered a breath test more than twice the 0.08 grams per 210 liters legal limit.

Best Harrisonburg Reckless Driving Attorney:  Most people have absolutely no understanding of their legal rights and how to assert those rights when asserted by police.  Since most people automatically surrender their constitutional rights to counsel and to not incriminate themselves, law enforcement is often confused when someone actually asserts his or her rights.  Stevens gained nothing by cooperating with the police investigation seeking to gain evidence to convict and jail him.  Stevens would have been better off merely telling the Officers: “I want a lawyer.  If I am not under arrest please let me go.”
