A breathalyzer is a device for estimating the blood alcohol content (BAC) from a breath sample to determine the concentration of alcohol for a person suspected of DUI of alcohol and/or drugs. This test is commonly administered by law enforcement.
People who are charged with DUI are typically proven guilty if the result of a breathalyzer test shows a reading of over .08. This is usually the strongest piece of evidence against the person charged to prove that he/she is driving under the influence.
While the result of a breathalyzer test is strong evidence, it is not always the ultimate determining factor that can prove a suspected person as either guilty or innocent. At the Law Offices of Adam Franzen, we offer extensive expertise in handling these types of cases. We take the time to conduct a proper review of all the available facts and details in order to formulate the best defense for our clients. We possess all of the right tools and knowledge to advise you through this situation and help determine the validity of the breathalyzer results.
There are specific factors that have to be taken into consideration when determining whether a breathalyzer test result can be suppressed. Various conditions could lead to the malfunction of a breathalyzer device, production of inaccurate readings and improper use of the device and its administration. Some factors to consider are as follows:
- Is the breathalyzer device properly calibrated?
- Is the breathalyzer device certified?
- Was there any interference with the results?
- Did the police office properly administer the test to produce accurate reading?
- What other factors have been present that may have resulted in a higher or inaccurate reading?
