Customer Question
I have a case that...
I have a case that, I, refused a breathalyzer and had blood drawn, even though that was refused, also. I was detained for over a month, with a $1000, cash bond, until My Refused Blood Work came back, from the Crime Lab as No Alcohol Detected and then was released. Now, I found out my Driving Lisence is Revoked due to a Refusal and I am expected to, take an Assessment, Safety classes, Get an Interlock device, The Whole Gammet, ad if I was Quiltu!! A Federal Lawyer, said My Representing Attorney, at the time, should be Sued for Malpractice because he neglected to file proper paperwork, in the adequate time, and this is why my Driving Privileges are Revoked! I was recently cited for speeding and now am facing criminal charges!! What do I do!!??

I was told he was suppose to file a motion with in 10 days to save my license, when i refused the breathalyzer. I was cited with speeding and, also, driving after revokation due to this dropped, and falsely, accusation, of a DUI.

I was not under arrest at the time I refused.
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
My Federal Lawyer informed me, that my Driving Lisence should have never been revoked but due to some messed up paper work. I am being treated as quilty, even after the charges were dropped!
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The Crime Lab's results was no alcohol detected. This piece of Evidence was only sent to my home and since the paperwork was not paid attention to until days later, I was thrown back into a jail cell and no lower of bond granted!!....Knowing You Are Innocent!!.....Crazy Stuff!
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I was falsely accused, falsely prisoned, and now, years later, being falsely accused of driving revocation!! ;, (

Thank you for your reply and additional information,

1. So, if I understand you correctly, you were not under arrest when you refused to take a breathalyzer test or blood test, correct ?

2. Were you charged with a DUI at some point during this process ?

3. If so, were you tried for a DUI and the Judge found you "Not Guilty"

Thank you,

I was found not guilty.
Criminal Lawyer: Andrea, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

You stated that you refused to take a breathalyzer test. Under Wisconsin law, a motorist's refusal will cause the motorist's license to be suspended and this is true even though the test results will come back negative and even though the motorist is ultimately found not guilty. I disagree with this law completely because a motorist might not be convicted for the DUI with which he or she was charged, but will still have their license suspended for their refusal.
