Deadlines Exist for DUI, DWI and Refusal to Consent Cases

In our previous blog post, we discussed how law enforcement officials determine a person's blood alcohol concentration percentage. Testing to determine BAC is legal in Oklahoma. In fact, when you get your drivers' license in the state, you agree to submit to BAC tests when a law enforcement officer requests you to take one. Even with that implied consent, there are still limits to the use of BAC testing. We can help you understand how your BAC test or refusal to take a BAC test might affect your defense.

If you are facing DUI, DWI or refusal to consent, we must take fast action to protect your rights. If you need to keep your driver's license or need to get a permit to work, you must take action within 15 days of your arrest. There are no second chances. If you miss the deadline, you won't be able to seek these privileges again.

When we take on your DWI, DUI or refusal to consent case, we look deep into your case to determine what we can use as part of your defense. Your civil rights, such as your right to be informed of your rights, can play a critical role in your defense strategy. We must look into the actions of the officer to determine if legal procedures, such as having reasonable grounds for a traffic stop, were followed.

We can help you to fight against the drunk driving charges that can affect every aspect of your life. We need to get started on your case right away to ensure that we meet all deadlines and have time to prepare.
