Attorney Webster successfully argued a motion to keep out statements regarding her client’s refusal to submit to warrantless chemical testing. Since an individual’s right to refuse warrantless chemical testing is protected under the U.S. Constitution pursuant to the recent U.S. Supreme Court case, Birchfield, it would be antithetical to the grant of this protection to then use a refusal as a sign of guilt at trial. This motion was granted by the Honorable Gary B. Gilman of the Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas in Bucks County.
