Should I Blow?
Skilled DWI Attorney STL
If you're on this page, it's because you're under 21, do not have a CDL, were not in a commercial vehicle, were not involved in a crash, but you HAVE had prior DWI arrests (before tonight).
If that doesn't sound like you, click here.
In order to decide if you want to blow or not, what you need to know if you're under 21 but you have a prior is (remember, this isn't legal advice):
If you choose to blow, anything over a .02 will result in a license suspension unless there are good facts that would allow your attorney to win the administrative case (read more about that here). If you heard from your last DWI that the license loss will be expunged when you turn 21, you should know that that only works for your first DWI case, so that won’t happen here. However, if you refuse to blow it is unlikely that you will be eligible for a deal to avoid license loss, and the revocation for a refusal would be for one year unless there are good facts that would allow your attorney to win your case (read more about that here).
In your situation (the one in the giant font at the top of this page), you may be slightly better off if you choose to blow than if you do not because any license suspension will be shorter than it likely would if you refuse. Just remember, there are potential negative consequences either way.
