Breathalyzer and Alcohol Blood Tests
Law enforcement officials often use chemical tests to determine whether to charge you with the crime of DWI/DUI. The two most common types of chemical tests are the breathalyzer test and the alcohol blood test. Unfortunately, law enforcement does not always administer these tests correctly or in accordance with the applicable procedures. If law enforcement did not conduct the test correctly, the court might exclude the test from trial or dismiss your charges.
