Part II Question: How Can Your Office Beat a License Suspension for Refusing a DUI Chemical Test?
Answer: Here are 5 ways our office maybe able to beat your license suspension for refusing a DUI chemical test. This list is not exhaustive. Each case is different and you should have a Pennsylvania DUI lawyer evaluate your case.
1) Our office may be able to argue that the officer did not have reasonable grounds to believe you were operating the vehicle while under the influence. Officers are trained to write in their police reports boilerplate language such as "the suspect has slurred speech and bloodshot eyes." If this is the only evidence the officer had to prove his case, your civil license suspension case could be beat. Also, if you were required to perform the field sobriety tests on an uneven or rocky surface and the test results were not accurate this could also be grounds for a valid license suspension appeal.
