Can I Challenge A Breathalyzer Or Blood Test?

Machines, like humans, make mistakes. Breathalyzer and blood tests are not always accurate. Yet they often serve as the foundation for DUI/OVWI convictions. When your driving record — and perhaps your freedom — are contingent on these sobriety tests, you should never assume they are beyond challenge.

Rely On The Informed Guidance Of A Former Prosecutor

Successfully challenging the state's evidence requires in-depth knowledge of the law. Fortunately, you do not have to navigate complex legal issues alone.

You can count on the proven experience of DUI defense lawyer Scott A. DeVries at DeVries Law Office. Our firm is home to one of the state's leading authorities on motor vehicle and DUI law. At our office, you will not only benefit from the experience of a seasoned defense lawyer, but you will also benefit from the valuable insight Mr. DeVries gained serving as a deputy prosecutor, Master Commissioner (appointed judge) and legal adviser to the Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV).

Exploring Every Angle To Challenge Faulty Evidence

The state often relies on Breathalyzer and blood tests to prove its case. Under some circumstances, however, our attorney may request the court to prevent such damaging evidence from being used against you. Without this evidence, the prosecutor might reduce or dismiss the charges.

Mr. DeVries is well-versed in the many ways to keep breath and blood test results out of court. He will examine every detail of your case to analyze the admissibility of the state's evidence, raising questions such as:

  • Did the law enforcement officer properly calibrate the Breathalyzer?
  • Did he or she receive adequate training to operate it correctly?
  • Did environmental factors interfere with the results?
  • Did the officer have a lawful basis for administering a breath or blood test?
