This weekend, we have been contacted by people who have been arrested since the implementation by the District's Attorneys Office of the policy of blood drawing in you refuse to blow. This is a common phenomena, but we believe that Bexar County DA has taking it to the next level.
As Americans, we have been given many constitutional rights, including the right to privacy, and it is our believe that, every time blood is drawn without consent, our constitutional rights are usurped.
On their website, the Bexar County DWI Task Force placed this info "Peace Officers from across Bexar County are trained and ready for the D.A.'s Office to launch 24hrs of blood draws for those who refuse to provide officers with a breath sample."
As we translate it, they are ready to violate our rights but because they will have the back up of the DA's office, its ok. WOW! Although we do not advocate drinking and driving, we are concerned about people's rights. In other words, if a person has not had any alcohol during the day, refuses to blow for whatever reason, that person would be arrested, have a charge pending, spend thousands on attorneys fees for just saying NO to the sometimes unreliable breathalyzer.
We have defended many people in that scenario and have challenged the bogus science that the breathalyzer brings to the DWI arena, and now, we are ready to challenge the unconstitutionality of the DA's practice.
If you feel that your rights have been violated, contact us.
