Refuse To Take A Breathalyzer? I Can Help.
There is a school of thought that it is best to refuse to take a breath test when pulled over on suspicion of DUI. This is not true. In fact, refusing to submit to a breath test can result in a number of complications to your case, exposing you to severe consequences such as a suspension of your driver’s license, fines, jail time and increased insurance premiums.
This is a difficult concept to understand, as one would think that our right not to incriminate ourselves would protect us from having to submit to this testing. If you have refused a breath test, it is crucial to speak to an attorney as soon as possible because it may be possible to have the refusal excluded from your case.
A Lawyer Who Will Fight To Protect Your Driving Privileges
I am criminal defense attorney Gene Barton. From my Chickasaw County law office, I have been defending people against drunk driving charges in the Tupelo area for more than 42 years and have earned a reputation as the “Bulldog of Mississippi.”
Note: I cannot defend criminal cases in the city where I am a prosecutor, which is Okolona. I can defend cases in greater Chickasaw County and surrounding counties throughout Mississippi, as well as in federal court.
If you have refused a breath test or field sobriety test, you face a one-year suspension of your license. You can rely on me to inform you of your rights and to fight aggressively to protect them.
I don’t judge my clients who have been charged with DUI. Instead, I focus on obtaining the best possible outcome given the circumstances. If the refusal can’t be removed from the evidence, I will challenge other evidence. If a suspension has already been levied, I will focus on going through the procedures for having it reinstated. Whatever your circumstances are, I will focus on obtaining the absolute best possible outcome for you.
