State v. J.P. – Refusal
J.P. was arrested for DUI in Dekalb County for allegedly weaving and speeding. He performed poorly on the field sobriety tests, and refused the officer's request for a breath test. Instead, J.P. asked for a blood test. At trial, Mr. Ryczek argued that J.P. asked for the most reliable method of determining whether he was guilty or innocent by asking for the blood test and the officer insisted on a less accurate test, the breath test. Ultimately the jury agreed with Mr. Ryczek's arguments and found J.P. not guilty of DUI and not guilty of weaving.
