Implied Consent - Complicated DUI Law Explained By Barclay Law, LLC

Alabama implied consent DUI lawyer John Michael Barclay fights for clients' rights

The implied consent law in Alabama means you agree to take a breath test if you are stopped on suspicion of drunk driving. The tests for implied consent in DUI cases in Alabama normally are the three approved blood alcohol concentration (BAC) tests - breath test, blood test and urine test. Police use these tests to determine if a driver is drunk. By law, you have to take one of these three tests if a police officer stops you under suspicion of DUI. And that's where Alabama's implied consent law comes into play.

According to Alabama's implied consent law, you gave consent to take one of the three BAC tests when you obtained your driver's license. As a result, the state of Alabama punishes people who refuse to take one of these tests if they are stopped for DUI. In most cases, drivers who refuse to take a BAC test will have their driver's license suspended for 90 days and could even be arrested on the spot. That's why it's important to take legal action within 10 days of your arrest to keep your driver's license. Otherwise, your driver's license could be suspended.

Another important aspect of DUI cases in Alabama involves the burden of proof. In Alabama, the burden of proof rests with prosecutors. The state must prove that someone was driving under the influence of alcohol. Experienced attorneys know how to suppress evidence and ultimately prevent the prosecution from meeting their burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt. Attorney John Michael Barclay excels at this work - and he has the track record to prove it.
