I was driving after a couple of glasses of wine, and my daily anti depression medication when i was pulled over. I knew that I was close to .08 either above or below...I knew that I was on medication so I refused to take the test. I had no idea this was a crime at the time. I also had no idea that it is worse than a 4th degree DUI if you refuse the crime. Why wasn't this explained to me. Once my lawyer met me at the station, we treid submitting to a test but they would not let us...somehow I was charged with both a 4th degree DUI, 5th degree DUI (Which i can't even find a definition for) and test refusal. My ex lawyer wants me to plead guilty to all of them...I think that if i plead guilty to the DUI the refusal to test should be dropped...if no...then what proof for the DUI?
