Do I Have The Right To An Attorney When Asked To Take A Chemical Test?
Attorney Myles Berman explains in California, a person does not have the right to an attorney before they either decide which test to take or whether or not a person should even take a test which is unfair. But that’s just the state of the law and it’s been that way for quite some time. An officer generally informs a person that they do not have the right to consult with an attorney before they try to take the test. If a person then decides to refuse to take a test, a few things can happen. One is where the officer will then and this is where people really get tripped up, the officer will say that if you refuse to take a test, you’ll spend an inordinate amount of time in jail before you will be released. The threat of remaining in jail is oftentimes used by officers to compel an individual person arrested to take a breath or a blood test. Contact Top Gun DUI Defense Attorney Myles L.
