Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. I was arrested for a DUI associated with a car accident where I sustained some minor injuries. Aren't the police
A: I certainly don't have all the facts of your situation, but generally every department has policies on how to handle certain situations. If your injuries required medical attention from a professional, you certainly should have been taken to the hospital at some point, especially if you remained in-custody.
Q. Is it possible to get a license that has been cancelled IPS back without doing ignition interlock?
A: Under the current law in Minnesota, if your license has been Canceled Inimical to Public Safety, then it is now a requirement that you must comply with a set duration on the interlock program to ever become valid again without the requirement of interlock in the future.
Q. Can I refuse a breathalyzer test if I'm pulled over on suspicion of DUI?
A: In Minnesota, it is still currently a crime of Gross Misdemeanor Refusal, if you refuse to submit to an evidentiary breath test (Datamaster DMT) at the police station.
Q. Am I required to have DUI plates on my vehicle even though I was not with during the incident
A: Although the license plate impoundment order applies to your vehicle because he was driving it at the time of the incident, there is a process that you can appeal to the Department of Public Safety for administrative review to potentially have your plates restored.
