re-opened the case due to old findings of dui.s,he didn't appear in court,warrant was issued,he is now in jail for that warrant ,charges are contemp of court and failure to submit testing,how much time can he serve for this?
Refusing a breath test with a prior refusal is punishable by up to a year in jail. Depending on what happened when he was originally arrested, he may have a legal argument to prevent his prosecution. I would encourage the family to hire an experienced DUI lawyer on his behalf. I would also recommend he put some thought into seeking counseling.
