Should You Refuse a Blood Alcohol Test?
Posted By The Law Offices of Jeffrey C. Grass || 28-Jun-2015
It’s commonly thought that by refusing a chemical test to determine blood alcohol content (BAC), a defendant may have a better chance of an acquittal because there will be less evidence against him or her. But in fact, most criminal defense attorneys strongly advise their clients not to refuse the test. This is because states have implied consent laws, which drivers violate by refusing a chemical test. Drivers can be prosecuted on a separate charge for refusing the test and they may face automatic penalties.
