RMV immediately suspended his license for a full three years for refusing the breathalyzer. We fought this at the RMV [which must be done within 15 calendar days of arrest] and then on appeal to a judge in court where a judge ordered his license restored [click yelllow link below]. He was then able to drive legally during the seven months it took to reach trial. On the day of trial, when the DA said she wasn't ready, I brought a "Motion to Dismiss for Failure to Prosecute" and convinced the judge to do so.
The judge dismissed all four charges.
