Saying No to a Breath Test Does Not Equate to Guilt in a Court of Law

When it comes to your constitutional rights, like the 4th and 5th amendments, you have a right to say "no, thank you" and it cannot be used against you in a court of law. Saying "no" to a breath test historically has been interpreted as consciousness of guilt - one is denying a breath test because they are in fact over the limit. The landscape, however, is changing as refusing a breath test is a constitutional right and shouldn't be held against you in a court of law. Listen to DUI attorney Jonathan Rands and KGMI's Dillion Honcoop discuss the cases that are bringing about these changes.
