When is a DUI Refusal Not a Refusal?

California drunk driving law makes it illegal to fail to submit or refusal to complete a breath or blood test upon the request of a peace officer for an arrest due to DUI. Although the law is fairly straightforward there are instances where a refusal is not actually legally deemed a refusal. For example, if the officer is negligent in properly admonishing the driver of the consequences of the refusal then the law forgives the arrestee and a sanction of a drivers license suspension may not be carried out.
