A DUI refusal hurts a client's case more than it helps in most cases. When an individual is stopped or contacted and there is a reasonable suspicion that they are driving under the influence, they will be asked to take a blood or breath test for alcohol or drugs. Refusal to take the official test can result in loss of license for at least a year or more by DMV depending on whether there are priors. Even if a person refuses, the officers can get a telephonic warrant to draw blood against the defendants will, and there are times when a warrant may not even be necessary. Then you end up with a blood result in addition to all the negatives of a DUI refusal by DMV and the Court.
