Weak BAC Evidence May Be Challenged in Court
Having been certified by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
in a course on DUI detection and
field sobriety tests, the lawyers at our firm are very familiar with the methods of gathering
DUI cases. As such, they are also extremely knowledgeable regarding different methods
of challenging that evidence.
Even if your BAC was at some point accurately measured as being over the
legal limit, it is possible that this result may not reflect your BAC
at the time you were actually driving. As the body takes a certain amount
of time to absorb alcohol into the bloodstream, your BAC typically peaks
nearly an hour after you last drink.
If this peak occurred between the time that you were pulled over and when
your BAC was tested as over .08, it is possible that the amount of alcohol
in your system was within the legal limit while you were actually operating
