Implied Consent Violation Attorney
Penalties for Refusal of Chemical Tests in Wisconsin
If you are pulled over for drunk driving and you refuse to submit to a breathalyzer, urine, or blood test, you may face penalties for violation of implied consent. Although refusal is not a criminal offense, you could have your license revoked, and if you are pulled over for drunk driving in the future, your past refusal can count against you as a previous DUI. If you break implied consent and are convicted of drunk driving, the penalties could be higher than for a DUI alone.
So what exactly is implied consent? Simply put, driving or having a driver’s license in Wisconsin implies that you consent to officer requests for DUI chemical tests.
