A person’s blood alcohol concentration, or BAC, is often considered by prosecutors and police officers to be one of the strongest pieces of evidence in a DUI case. However, there are a number of factors that could lead to inaccurate BAC testing. Mishandling of or contamination of blood samples, malfunctions with BAC testing devices, and user error all may lead to erroneous BAC results that are used to file DUI charges against you.
If you are arrested in Queen Creek for a DUI and the police took a blood, breath, or urine sample from you for BAC or other forensic toxicology testing, you will need a skilled Queen Creek DUI lawyer that is ready and willing to challenge the reliability of the government’s tests.
The most common types of BAC testing used in Queen Creek DUI arrests are “Intoxilyzer” (breathalyzer) and head space gas chromatography testing. Officers will take blood or breath samples to determine a person’s BAC. There are a number of precautions that need to be taken when administering and analyzing these tests. If police or lab technicians cut corners, BAC results can be skewed.
The attorneys at the Rosenstein Law Group have substantial experience dealing with forensic evidence. We also work closely with leading forensic experts to form unique defenses based on the facts of each case. A good DUI defense attorney will not only review the scientific testing data to challenge the BAC but will also use facts gathered from your roadside interaction with the police to attack the credibility of the prosecution’s BAC evidence. This comprehensive approach has led to suppressed evidence, reduced charges, dismissals, and complete acquittals for many our clients.
