Kane County, IL State’s Attorney wants to close ‘No Refusal’ loophole by seeking 1-year suspensions

Kane County State’s Attorney Joe McMahon said Wednesday his office will pursue a one-year automatic license suspension for drivers who initially refuse a breath test during “No Refusal” events but acquiesce after police obtain a search warrant.

McMahon addressed the issue this week during his monthly media meeting while discussing the results of the most recent “No Refusal” event the night before Thanksgiving, also known as “Black Wednesday,” one of the biggest drinking nights of the year.
