What Is Implied Consent Law In Minnesota?

Did you know that if you obtain a driver's license in Minnesota that you consent to be tested when pulled over on suspicion of drunk or drugged driving? Like most states, Minnesota has an implied consent provision in the DUI/DWI laws. It also means if you do not allow testing to proceed, you could be charged with test refusal and your driving privileges can be revoked.

At Groshek Law in Minneapolis, our attorneys defend individuals who have been charged with drunk or drugged driving and with refusal to submit to testing, both blood and breath. We work diligently to protect the rights of our clients and lessen the penalties they face.

The Cutting Edge Of DWI Defense

Founding attorney Christa Groshek strives to be on the cutting edge of technologies associated with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol (DUI) and driving while intoxicated (DWI), such as breath testing equipment and ignition interlock devices. She was a member of the Source Code Coalition, a group of defense attorneys in Minnesota who fought to obtain information regarding the reliability of the Intoxilyzer 5000, which had been under suspicion for years. Ignition interlock devices are mandatory in DUI sentencings, so make sure you understand your rights.

Protecting Your Driver's License

Refusing testing during a DUI stop can result in the loss of your driving rights. It is important to realize that this threat exists on the driver's license side in addition to the criminal penalties you face. The basis for challenging the criminal case against you often involves the same facts that drive your challenge of license suspension or revocation. Christa Groshek can handle both the criminal and civil aspects of your case.
