Arlington's DUI FAQ Lawyer

Refusing a BAC test will help my case, right?

In Virginia, refusing a BAC test can actually be extremely detrimental to a case.  You can still be arrested and charged for DUI with no BAC results.  In addition, you could face harsher penalties for refusing a BAC test if a conviction in your case is reached.

How long will I be in jail if I am convicted?

First-time offenders don’t usually serve any time in jail.  The maximum penalty you may face 5 days in jail, which you will likely face if your BAC level was above .15% or if they refused a BAC test.

Will I lose my license?

For a first-time conviction, your license will be suspended for 1 year
