No Refusal DWI Arrest

If you were arrested for DWI during a “no refusal” blood draw then contact a criminal defense attorney with The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy at 469-304-3422.

In Collin County, law enforcement officers routinely conduct “Drive Sober or Else” weekends. During that weekend, those arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI) will be asked to provide a breath or blood sample. 

If they refuse, officers will seek a warrant from a judge. On-call judges stand ready to determine whether sufficient probable cause exists for a warrant. The driver’s blood will be drawn if the judge finds there is sufficient evidence of DWI and signs the warrant.

The officers do not draw the blood.  Rather, health care “professionals” are stationed at certain local jails for this purpose. Call us to learn more about how we fight DWI blood test cases.  


Workshop on "No Refusal" Laws

MADD “No Refusal” DWI Workshop – Mothers Against Drunk Driving invited active judicial, prosecutorial, law enforcement and highway safety professionals at the state and local level, including Traffic Safety Resource Prosecutors and Judicial Outreach Liaisons that were interested in implementing No-Refusal programs.

Participants and presenters will be selected were selected through a cooperative process between MADD and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Topics included gaining an advanced understanding of procedures, methods, and tactics for the streamlined handling of matters related to the issuance of warrants and obtaining blood samples.

The topics also included fostering a discussion of the responses to the McNeely vs. Missouri Supreme Court decision.  The No-Refusal DWI Workshop was held in Denver, Colorado on July 8th and 9th, 2014.
