Louisiana takes these charges very seriously and, for your first offense,
you could be facing two days to six months in jail, a $1,000 fine, 90
day license suspension, and even the installation of an Interlock Ignition

time, costlier fines, and longer license suspensions. With your freedom,
driving privileges, money, and reputation all at stake, it is important

and results accurately recorded?
- Was any evidence videotaped by the law enforcement officer?
- We you properly read your rights before questioning occurred?
Chemical Test Refusal & Implied Consent Law in LA
While you do have the right to refuse a chemical test if your vehicle is
pulled over, Louisiana has an implied consent law. This means that refusing
a test will make you subject to a fine and automatic license suspension.
These fines and suspensions can be appealed, and our firm is able to assist
you with the process as we defend your driving privileges.
