Breath Test Refusal

DUI Lawyers in Charlotte Fighting for You

It is too late now to make a decision on whether or not to submit to a breath test in the midst of a traffic stop, but the steps you take next could have a tremendous impact on the outcome of your case. Whether or not you challenge the results of a breath test and how you go about doing so can make all the difference as you face consequences such as the suspension of your driver’s license, fines, and increased insurance premiums.

At Jetton & Meredith, our lawyers understand what it takes to effectively challenge breath test results* and can provide you with knowledgeable counsel about how to proceed in your DUI defense. To speak to one of our Charlotte DUI lawyers about your breath test refusal, call (704) 931-5535 today for a consultation.

It Is Not Too Late to Take Action in Your Defense

Even if you submitted to a breath test, it is not too late to benefit from the advice and advocacy of our attorneys. There are strict procedures that must be followed when administering tests via an Alco-Sensor or Intox EC/IR II; if the police fail to follow them, it can result in evidence being barred from your case.

Did You Refuse a Breath Test?

Refusing the breath test may actually be advantageous to your defense if you are facing DUI/DWI charges.

However, it may also have negative consequences:

  • The good - You will not have to fight possibly incriminating evidence of your blood alcohol content level (above or below 0.08, the legal definition of intoxication). Remember: Even if you had breathed into the Alco-Sensor or Intox EC/IR II, the blood alcohol content (BAC) reading may or may not have been accurate.
  • The bad - Your driver’s license may be suspended for up to a year.

    Our attorneys will fight aggressively to protect your driver’s license while pursuing a reduction or dismissal of the charges against you.* The first step in your defense will be requesting a DMV hearing to challenge your suspension.
