If you have been arrested for DUI/DWI, it can be incredibly nerve-wracking and stressful. You may have a number of questions on your mind, such as who you can trust and what you can do to protect your rights. At The Law Office of Rene A. Flores PLLC, we are here to ensure you are aware of your rights and to answer all of your questions.
If you are pulled over, it is very important that you remain calm and answer any questions, you can even provide more information than you have to. If they ask you questions about whether you have been drinking or anything else to do with a potential criminal charge, exercise your right to remain silent.
You do need to submit to a Breathalyzer or blood test to determine your BAC at the time of the arrest. If you refuse to submit to chemical testing, you could find yourself facing repercussions such as the revocation of your license.
You do not have to submit to field tests, regardless of the circumstances during your arrest. Although these tests can be used to prove your innocence, there are too many other factors involved. The results could be used to convict you.
It is important that you have representation on your side after you have been arrested for DUI. Our Hidalgo County DWI attorney and team members are ready to represent you against the charges you are facing and ensure your rights are protected.
The exact penalties for a DWI/DUI conviction depend on the details of the arrest, as well as whether you have previous arrests. Law enforcement members are typically harsher on those who have a record.
