Consequences 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’s 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.
