NEWPORT COUNTY RHODE ISLAND—CHARGED WITH DUI AFTER REFUSING A CHEMICAL TEST

There is hope.

Most individuals in RHODE ISLAND who are arrested in RHODE ISLAND under suspicion of DUI ( driving under the influence ) REFUSE TO SUBMIT TO A BREATH TEST OR A BLOOD TEST.  Upon being arrested in Rhode Island and charged with a RHODE ISLAND DUI and also a RHODE ISLAND REFUSAL the charged individual is facing two distinct and different charges.  The RHODE ISLAND DUI charge is criminal and is prosecuted in the RHODE ISLAND DISTRICT COURT.  The penalties are criminal and could include one year of confinement/jail.  The RHODE ISLAND REFUSAL charge is a civil traffic violation ( the “mother of all traffic tickets” in the vernacular of those old enough to remember the Gulf Wars ).  The RHODE ISLAND REFUSAL charge is prosecuted in the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal and subjects the accused to civil penalties which could include a one year loss of driving in RHODE ISLAND.  The FLANAGAN LAW OFFICES, LLC. can protect you in both forums.  Attorney Frank Flanagan is a Veteran Trial Attorney and Navy JAG Veteran with over 20 years experience in defending individuals accused in the RHODE ISLAND COURTS.  Put those years of experience to work in defending your rights.
