Every week, I will dedicate a little time to give a legal opinion, or otherwise educate all clients and friends, or anybody else who is interested. This week, I wanted to write on DUI’s. There has been an increase in DUI’s. Please do no drink or drive. It is best to drink at home, or get a ride home. However, if you are stopped for DUI by a police officer law, by law you do not have to take the field sobriety test, or the breath test. Being a former police officer myself, I can assure that the purpose of these test is to gather more information that will help a DUI conviction in court. If you refuse the test, the officer may attempt to get a search warrant for a blood draw. But the officer will have to bring that evidence in front of an judge to get approved. If you get stopped for DUI, think very hard on whether you should refuse the test, and call an attorney.
