Breath Tests

Arrested for DUI from a Failed Breath Test?

In the state of California, if you are pulled over under presumption that you are operating a vehicle under the influence of drugs or alcohol, you may be asked to abide by a breath test. Breathalyzers are handheld devices that measure the amount of saturated alcohol in your blood stream.

If you were stopped and arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) or a refusal to take a breath test, it is important that you protect your rights and your driving privileges by contacting an experienced Brea DUI attorney from Anthony Curiale and Associates, A Professional Corporation right away. Our team of trusted attorneys has been serving the Brea for more than 40 Years and we may be able to defend your DUI charges as well!

California's Implied Consent Law

Under California law, anyone who refuses a breath or blood test to check their blood alcohol content level may be subjected to the implied consent law. Implied consent laws require you to take a breath or blood test regardless if you are sober or not.

The idea behind it is that if you are sober, you have nothing to hide and if you are intoxicated, the sobriety test will be able to know. If you refuse to take a breath or blood test, you will face serious repercussions. You will have your license automatically suspended for up to a year and, if you are later convicted of a DUI, you could lose your license for up to 10 years. It is important to remember, that you do not necessarily have to take the test at the scene of the traffic stop, you can take it at the police station, but you have to take a test whether you are sober or not.

Contact Anthony Curiale and Associates, A Professional Corporation for a Case Evaluation

Are you wondering what to do after failing a breathalyzer test? At our firm, we understand that you may be facing a difficult situation. Implied consent laws may make it seem like you are facing a lose-lose situation, but you can still fight your charges. Breath tests are not always accurate and if you take a test at a station, the time between your last drink and your test could make a difference in the amount of alcohol found in your system.

It is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible after an arrest. When you retain the representation of Anthony Curiale and Associates, A Professional Corporation, we will immediately begin to investigate your case and ensure that your rights were not infringed upon during the stop or the arrest. We are not afraid to challenge any evidence collected in a sobriety test and aggressively litigate on your behalf.
