Breath Test Refusal
Need an Attorney in Delaware or Franklin County to Mitigate the Effects of a Breath Test Refusal?
Many people don't know their rights when they are pulled over for a DUI. Ohio is an “implied consent” state. That means that when you get behind the wheel you are automatically consenting to give a breath test. In practice, this means that if you refuse the test (for a first charge), you will face the Administrative License Revocation (ALS) for a definite period of one year.
Limited Driving Privileges are a Possibility, with a Good Lawyer.
After the first 30-days of an ALS, you may be eligible for limited occupational driving privileges from the Court (Judge). The length of the ALS increases with each offense charged and the 30-day window jumps to 90 days for a second refusal, a year for a third, and three years for a fourth and subsequent convictions.
A Refusal to Test Will Have Complicated Impacts on Your Case.
How the refusal or lack thereof factors into your charges is a complex issue. As such, it is essential to understand how to skillfully structure your defense in an effort to achieve the best possible outcome. The importance of retaining a skilled and experienced attorney cannot be overstated.
