Is Asthma A Defense Against A Refusal Charge When I Tried To Provide A Sample For The Alcotest In New Jersey?

It may be, and for more reasons than you may realize.

First, having an asthma attack is strong grounds to defeat the refusal charge, and could even contribute a defense to what the police officer observed as behavior indicating intoxication.

Additionally, if the Alcotest did get a reading at some point, it may have been artificially high if you had used certain asthma inhalers that contain a small amount of alcohol.

You should consult with an experienced DWI lawyer who knows how to push back against a prosecutor’s case with facts and reason.
