There are many circumstances that could lead to a person's death. Sometimes a person dies in an accident, after an illness or simply due to old age. Other times, however, interactions between two individuals can go south and in extreme circumstances one person is accused of killing another. When this happens, a person in Virginia could be accused of committing the violent crime of first-degree murder.
Being pulled over by the police in Virginia can make anyone nervous, but these nerves can be amplified if the motorist is asked to perform a field sobriety test or a breath test to determine if they are driving under the influence. A DUI conviction could have significant short-term and long-term effects, and a motorist may be inclined to not submit to a breath test. They may feel it is unnecessary as they are not intoxicated, or they may be afraid of what the results will be. However, they should understand that there are consequences for refusing to take a DUI breath test.
