In addition to other common methods of field sobriety testing, most state patrol officers use a Breathalyzer to measure blood alcohol level (BAC), the results of which are used as the basis for DUI/DWI charges. No electronic device should be considered foolproof — equipment malfunction or improper use could result in faulty or unreliable results.
To protect your rights in such situations, the experienced and aggressive lawyers at Johnson Law Group will build a strong defense against DUI/DWI charges that could have serious consequences, both now and in the future. To give yourself the best opportunity against DUI/DWI charges, contact our Bloomington Breathalyzer lawyers immediately.
Machines used to measure BAC operate by using the measure of alcohol on your breath to calculate the level of alcohol in your blood. The medical community in general considers them to be inaccurate methods by which to measure alcohol content, but Breathalyzers are still used by law enforcement officials because they are less expensive than more reliable methods of testing BAC such as a blood or urine tests.
Nonetheless, Breathalyzer refusal may result in license suspension. It is wise to speak with an experienced attorney prior to refusing to take a BAC test.
Our criminal defense lawyers have a history of working with experts and consultants who are able to address the technical aspects of each device used to test BAC, including the Intoxilyzer 5000, to provide the best opportunity for a successful challenge of the results' admission as evidence to support the charges against you. Dismissal of BAC evidence obtained by a Breathalyzer machine will often result in substantial reduction of the charges against you, if not outright dismissal.
When your DUI/DWI charges are based entirely on Breathalyzer results, it is important to work with attorneys who understand the technology and how it can be refuted. Our lawyers can help negotiate plea arrangements to minimize the consequences of DUI/DWI charges and help you to avoid jail time.
