Orange County DUI Refusal
In the state of California you are required by law to submit to a blood, breath or urine sample if you are suspected of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Unfortunately, there are steep consequences to refusing to take these tests.
After your DUI arrest, you have ten days to request a DMV hearing. At the hearing, if the officer sees that you refused a chemical test, they will most likely deny even a restricted license which would allow you to drive to work.
Sometimes people consent to taking breath test, but the reading doesn’t come out correctly for a variety of reasons, and the police will mark this as a refusal. An experienced DUI attorney such as attorney Ali Komaili can review your case and the testing attached to it to see if all the correct steps were taken and the refusal marked by the police is appropriate or can be excused due to different circumstances.
It is in your best interest not to refuse the chemical tests asked for by the police because of the severity it carries at the DMV, but refusals can be challenged and defended by an experienced and skilled attorney.
