If it’s mandated by state law and it has to be attested by the arresting officer’s signature that he did in fact inform me of the chemical test and etc., I would have taken it to prove my innocence relying on a blood test accuracy of when I take my dr. Prescribed Xanax and I never drive on them. I want to request footage of the arrest to prove he lied. If it’s not important why the heck do they sign . It’s state mandated law I was to be informed. Should I pursue this?
Yes, you should pursue this. If the officer did not read you the Implied Consent Notice, your alleged refusal should be suppressed. Additionally, you have a good argument that the case should be dismissed for the officer's failure to comply with the Implied Consent Law requiring him/her to administer a chemical test as soon as possible. The officer's failure violated your right to confront the evidence against you and to prove your innocence.
I agree with Mr. Rycek. Also, you will need to hire an attorney as quick as possible. I'm not sure if they have suspended your license but if so you need to appeal to DDS within 30 days to keep your license from being suspended.
Yes, you should pursue this, but do so with a lawyer. Get a lawyer asap. Period.
You're going to need a lawyer for this. This information will be hard to obtain through Open Records. It may require some pretrial motions of discovery requests from a qualified attorney. Best of luck.
