On Monday, January 11, 2010, the Warwick DUI charge against Federal Prosecutor for the District of Rhode Island Gerard B. Sullivan was dismissed based on his plea to the Refusal to Submit to a Chemical Test charge at the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal. In many Rhode Island DUI and Refusal cases the State and Municipal Prosecutors are willing to consider the dismissal of the criminal DUI charge in exchange for a Defendant's plea to the civil Refusal charge at the RITT if it is a first offense and there is no accident.

If you or a family member has been charged with drunk driving or refusal to submit to a chemical test please contact Robert H. Humphrey, Esq. at (401) 816-5862 or E-mail him at email@example.com.
