Protect Your Record And Your Driver's License
Missouri is an implied consent state, which means that by driving on the state's roads, you have given your consent to submit to breath tests to determine blood alcohol content (BAC). Refusing to submit to any test to determine your BAC may result in the loss of your driving privileges for one year.
At The Law Office of Michael L. Roberts, LLC, I represent drivers charged with test refusal in Missouri. I understand the serious consequences that a conviction will have on your life and your job. You can rely on my extensive DWI/DUI experience as a police officer and lawyer. Please contact me today for a free consultation with a Joplin Breathalyzer test attorney.
As a former police officer, I know how to evaluate police procedure in DWI arrests. I have also represented the state as well as defense clients on test refusal cases. I know what the court requires to uphold refusal cases or to find in favor of defendants.
If you are arrested on suspicion of DWI and taken to the police station, you will be asked to take a breath test. Refusing a first breath test will cause you to lose your driver's license for one year. A subsequent alcohol offense will increase the penalties you face. Typically, subsequent DWI convictions will impose longer license suspensions/revocations and require the installation of an ignition interlock device on your vehicle. I represent clients at license suspension hearings before the Missouri Department of Revenue.
When I investigate your arrest, I will review the police procedure. Did the officer have probable cause to pull you over and arrest you? Did he or she advise you of your rights? If your constitutional rights were violated for these or other reasons, I may argue for the reduction or dismissal of the charges.
