Poughkeepsie Breathalyzer Test Refusal Lawyer
After being stopped for a
DWI, you will be faced with a tough decision: Do you take the Breathalyzer
test or do you refuse to blow? On the one hand, if you take the test,
you may be providing evidence that will be used against you. On the other
hand, you will likely have your driver's license suspended simply
for refusing to take the breath test.
Unfortunately, you will not be allowed to discuss the options with a Poughkeepsie
Breathalyzer test refusal attorney before you make the choice. You will
have to take all factors into consideration. For example, if you had a
child in the car and might be subject to a felony DWI charge under Leandra's
Law, it may be better not to blow. However, if you truly did not have
much to drink and believe the test will prove it, blowing may be a good idea.
Regardless of the choice you make, you should contact an experienced trial
lawyer at The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC as soon as possible
to determine your next steps.
If You Did Blow
People often think that there is no way to fight a New York DWI charge
if breath test results show blood alcohol content (BAC) above .08. That
is not the case. There may be flaws in terms of how the stop was conducted.
Were you pulled over because you had your high beams on, with no probable
cause for a drunk driving stop? Was the Breathalyzer test properly administered?
We will find weaknesses in the case against you. Even if there are none,
there still may be options, particularly for first time offenders.
If You Refused To Blow
If you did not submit to the breath test, you will face a refusal hearing.
We will represent you at that hearing. These are challenging, but we understand
the steps that can be taken to pursue a positive outcome. Whether you
refused the Breathalyzer test or the field sobriety tests, you can be
confident with us on your side.
