Refusing a breathalyzer, or refusing to blow, can result in criminal charges. To fight this charge, you need an experienced criminal lawyer who has experience with these types of cases. We know that these types of cases are often complicated and difficult. We will work hard to make sure that your rights are protected and that any evidence against you is carefully evaluated so that we can build the best possible defence for you.
If you are stopped by law enforcement for suspicion of driving under the influence (DUI), several things can happen. You may be asked to take a breathalyzer test. Refusing a breathalyzer could lead to the officer believing you are under the influence and being charged with a DUI. The penalties for refusing to blow are the same as those for impaired driving. You will receive an immediate suspension of your driver's license, and if convicted, you could face a large fine or up to 120 days in jail.
