DUI / Refusal

DUI/Refusal comprise cases where an individual is charged with driving under the influence and/or refusing to submit to a breathalyzer administrated by a law enforcement officer. In the state of Rhode Island, this is a serious charge that can result in up to 5 years in prison, $5000 in penalties, and license suspension.
