Case Results


In a breath test refusal hearing (Implied Consent hearing), the officer obtained a search warrant to draw the client's blood because he alleged the client refused to submit to the breath test that was offered. At the hearing, Attorney Awad determined that the officer who pulled over the client was a different officer than the one who arrested the client and offered the breath test.

As a result, the case was dismissed and client's driving privileges were not suspended for the standard one year period.
