Breathalyzer Evidence

If you have been arrested for a drunk driving offense because of a failed Breathalyzer test, you are not doomed to a DUI conviction or the harsh penalties that it carries. These tests can often be inaccurate or inadmissible by variations from protocol.

In the state of Maryland, if you are shown to have a blood alcohol content (BAC) of more than .08 percent, you can be arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI). Driving under the influence (DUI) charges are pressed if your BAC ranges from .04 percent to .07 percent. This is still a serious charge requiring capable representation.

Challenging Breath Test Results

Just because you have blown a result above the legal limit, you are not necessarily doomed to the outcome of a DUI or DWI conviction. We are prepared to put together a defense tailored to your exact situation that will address the DUI/DWI charges against you.

At Cochran and Chhabra, LLC, we will thoroughly review the details of the Breathalyzer test, including how it was administered as well as the calibration and cleaning of the device. These devices must be carefully calibrated and cleaned upon a strict schedule, and failure to do so can result in a false test result. We will also check the training credentials of the officer who administered the test.

We are also prepared to check the blood work and the manner in which it was processed. Any inconsistencies in either the protocol of the Breathalyzer or subsequent blood work can cause the evidence to be suppressed or thrown out.
