Why is refusing to take a breathalyzer test such a serious offense? Because under the state's "implied consent" law, your consent to taking a breathalyzer or chemical test was automatically granted the moment you applied for your driver's license.
If you refuse to take the test, the law enforcement officer is required to inform you of the penalties for doing so and your right to see a doctor for testing. Attorney Thomasian may be able to prove that you were unlawfully stopped or that you were not informed of your rights or the penalties for refusing the test.
Rhode Island DUI Attorney Thomasian has the experience and knowledge you need to make your criminal case a thing of the past. He will remain at your side, no matter what happens.
