DUI & DWI Breath Tests Lawyer in Kansas City
Steve Schanker Reviews Breath & Blood Test Accuracy
The majority of drunk driving cases are
based on breath test results over 0.08%. A properly administered portable breath test performed on the Intoxilyzer
5000, Intoxilyzer 8000, Intoximeter or Datamaster machine is generally
admissible and an accurate measurement of the amount of alcohol in a person's
bloodstream. A reading of 0.08 or above creates a legal presumption that
you were intoxicated.

while preparing for or administering the test, the result may be inadmissible.

Portable Breath tests are commonly used as the main basis for a
DUI charge and
blood tests can also be used for this purpose, especially with a
DUI involving drugs. Without a DUI lawyer in Kansas City to investigate these aspects of your
case, the results of these tests can be submitted as evidence against
you and all but guarantee a conviction.
This lays you open to a massive potential injustice, as these tests do
not always give accurate readings. A
DUI lawyer in Kansas City familiar with the science of these tests, their correct
administrative and technical procedures and how these can be in error
can make all the difference to the outcome of your case.
Breath tests may be administered incorrectly and the training of the police
officer concerned should thus always be reviewed. The device used may
have calibration problems or be otherwise unsound, in which case the results
will not be reliable.

If your test results are found to be unreliable, they may not be admitted
as evidence. This may well result in dropped charges if the prosecution
feels there is insufficient evidence with which to achieve a conviction.
If your case does proceed, the validity of your tests may still be questioned
by Attorney Steve Schanker to enter reasonable doubt of guilt into the
proceedings, in which case the jury must acquit you. Even if you have
refused to take submit to these tests, which is a violation of the implied
consent of accepting your license, there may be aspects of your case he
can use to achieve a positive outcome.
