ND Supreme Court weighs the legality of criminal penalties for DUI test refusal

In North Dakota, refusal to submit to a chemical test holds the same penalty as driving under the influence, including potential jail time.

Refusing either a preliminary breath test, which is not admissible in a jury trial, or a chemical test is grounds for the charge.
