If you have been pulled over for a DUI in Chester County and asked to take a field sobriety test, you may not know if you have a right to refuse to take a breath test or how a breath test refusal or breath test results will affect the outcome of your case.
Refusing a Breathalyzer test does not automatically mean you will be convicted of DUI. There is no criminal penalty for a breath test refusal, and the prosecution still carries the burden of proof. Refusing a breath test will, however, prompt the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) to seek a mandatory one-year suspension of your driver’s license. This is an administrative matter that a skilled defense lawyer can help you challenge.
I handle a wide range of criminal defense matters, including defending minors against charges of underage drinking and other violations. Whether you are facing criminal charges for the first time or have a prior conviction, I know how to protect your rights against charges. Remember that an underage drinking conviction carries a mandatory 90 days drivers license suspension and will result in a criminal record.
