Defending Your Rights When Police Seek A Blood Search Warrant
Many people who are pulled over for DWI refuse the field sobriety tests and the breath test. Prosecutors are instructing police officers to get a blood search warrant, which allows them to force you to give a blood sample. If you are subject to a blood search warrant, you need a lawyer with extensive experience in DWI defense.
Ryan R. Hill, Attorney at Law, has been keeping up with all of the changes in the use of blood search warrants and knows how to defend against their use. Ryan and his team will work tirelessly to help you avoid the penalties a DWI conviction can bring. Ryan has practiced criminal defense for more than 25 years and is well-acquainted with the county legal systems in East Texas. He will fight to protect your rights and your future.
The Police Can Force You To Give A Blood Draw If They Get A Warrant
If you refuse a breath test when you are pulled over, the police can request a blood search warrant, which can be faxed by a local judge, and take you to a hospital to have your blood drawn. If you refuse to submit, they can use reasonable force to take a blood sample.
If you do not look well when you are pulled over, or if your responses are slow, and your blood sample comes back below the legal limit, the prosecution can have your blood sample re-analyzed for prescription and illegal drugs.
If you cause an accident and someone is hurt, the police can insist you give a blood sample, with or without a warrant. Hurt is defined by being taken to the hospital by ambulance.
Ryan Hill will review all of the evidence against you, including the blood search warrant validity and whether the blood draw was done according to proper procedure. He will look for all opportunities to get the best possible outcome in your case, including reduced charges, dismissal or an acquittal at trial.
