An important question in every DWI or BUI case is how much stock the jury is going to put into the results of blood alcohol tests, specifically the breathalyzer test. These tests are generally accepted as accurate in the mainstream and presented as such by the prosecution. There is however a difference of opinion, and that difference of opinion can be used to weaken the jury’s trust in the results. A good summary of breathalyzer accuracy can be found here for the curious.
If someone is going to be convicted criminally of DWI the BAC results that are admitted in court as evidence should be accurate. After all if a person’s true BAC is below the legal limit he or she should not have to suffer with a DWI on their record which can have serious consequences on the future. If you find that you have been charged with a DWI the results of the BAC test may be able to be challenged. You need to contact an attorney who has the experience and knowledge necessary to handle your case with the care it deserves.
