CAN I REFUSE TO PERFORM A BREATH TEST?

When I give presentations about DWI and how to handle the situation if you're pulled over and arrested for DWI, people often ask, “Can I refuse to perform a breath test?” Although, in every state, you can refuse to give a breath test, New York State has certain circumstances that will lead to serious consequences to you if you elect to refuse to submit to a breath test. First, your license will be suspended for a period of one year, and that refusal to give a breath test can be used in court as evidence that you were conscious of your guilt. If you refuse a breath test and are arrested for DWI, it's important to hire a Buffalo DWI attorney to defend your rights and help you achieve the best possible outcome.

Were you or a loved one arrested for DWI and refused to perform a breath test?  Contact dedicated criminal attorney Drew Fritsch to protect your freedom.
