Your Non-Cooperative Rights explained by Texas DWI Defense Attorney

“Many people don’t understand that during a DWI, they do not have to cooperate with that investigation. Now, you may go to jail, but you do not have to cooperate with that investigation and potentially give evidence against yourself. For example, an officer is always going to ask you how much you’ve had to drink. You don’t have to answer that question. The officer is going to lead right into field sobriety tests like you don’t have a choice. But you do have a choice. You don’t have to perform field sobriety tests. And then an officer is also going to ask you to provide a specimen of your breath and/or blood, and sometimes urine. And you don’t have to provide a specimen unless they come back with a warrant to obtain that evidence.”
