Consequences If You Refuse A Blood or Breath Test

HomePractice AreasConsequences if you refuse a blood or breath test

If you are suspected and stopped for DWI or DUI, and you refuse a blood or breath test, under Minnesota‚Äôs Implied Consent law you face a minimum civil penalty of one year license revocation and a maximum criminal penalty of a $3000.00 fine and one year in jail. If there is a DWI accident causing injury or death to another, then the Implied Consent procedures do not apply and a blood test will be taken with or without your consent.  Under these circumstances you do not have the legal right to refuse to submit to a blood or breath test.

DWI / DUI/ Drunk Driving Defense Defense Lawyer Handling Blood & Breath Test Results

At Halberg Criminal Defense, we provide aggressive criminal defense and a strong legal commitment to clients charged with DWI / DUI/ Drunk Driving in Minneapolis, Saint Paul, the Twin Cities Metropolitan Area and the State of Minnesota. We can challenge the outcome of a blood or breath intoxication report in an effort to have the findings dismissed so they cannot be used to convict the person of DWI / DUI/ Drunk Driving Defense.
