Should I Blow?
Skilled DWI Attorney STL
Ok, So you are over 21, do not have a CDL, were not in a commercial vehicle, but HAVE had a prior DWI arrest.
If this doesn't sound like you, click here to start over
However, if this is you, here are some things you should consider when making YOUR decision about whether to blow or not:
It is unlikely for your attorney to work out a deal to keep your license if you refuse to blow due to your prior DWI arrests. This means the attorney would have to win your refusal case based on good facts or you would lose your license for 1-year. If you choose to blow and have had another administrative alcohol suspension in the past 5 years, even your blow case can result in a one-year revocation.
You are equally likely to lose your license if you blow or not, but it could be made worse if you refuse AND the officer applies for a warrant for a blood draw.
You may be slightly better off if you blow unless you were involved in an accident (read more about that here).
