No-Refusal Search Warrants
DWI Defense Strategies for Blood Test Refusal
Law enforcement officers and district attorneys have found that it is much more difficult to prosecute people who refuse to submit to a breathalyzer or blood alcohol test than those who consent to provide such concrete evidence. If you were pulled over without reasonable suspicion, if the police searched your car or forced you to take a blood test, contact the defense attorneys at Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP.

A New Twist to Search Warrants in DWI Cases
Some law enforcement agencies have prepared a short application for a search warrant that details why the police officer believes the person is intoxicated and the fact that they refused the test. They then instantly submit the application to a magistrate or judge asking for a search warrant so that a nurse or technician can draw blood from you in jail or at a local hospital.
While this is not an everyday occurrence—it usually happens around the holidays or during other periods of celebration—it comes as a big surprise to most people who never expected that their rights could be violated in this way. If the police have obtained a search warrant against you, it doesn’t matter if you’ve refused to take the breathalyzer or blood test. They will draw blood and send it for analysis.
At Crain Lewis Brogdon, LLP, we do not stand idly by and let police bullying like this go unchallenged. We bring DWI cases to court to ask the judge to determine if the search warrant was reasonable and if the stop and the search was justified. Our attorneys fight aggressively to defend you in court and in ALR hearings.
