I received a Operating While Intoxicated on January 24,

Customer Question
Hi, I received a Operating...
Hi, I received a Operating While Intoxicated on January 24, 2016. I refused the chemical test because I did not understand what it was and I requested to speak to a lawyer first. I want to write a letter to the arresting officer pleading he drop the refusal of chemical test charges so I do not lose my license for a year. Also, I want to write a letter to the prosecutor requesting the charges be dropped or a lesser charge. I am 35 and never been in trouble. I received a speeding ticket in 2008 or 2009 and that is it. Can you help me write these letters or provide insight on how it should be written? Thank you
