The tests used to determine blood alcohol content (BAC) are not faultless. It is not uncommon for the tests to be administered incorrectly. When they are, the results must be suppressed or thrown out. You need a skilled lawyer on your side, reviewing the evidence and searching for inconsistencies to prevent it from being used against you.
At The Law Office of Michael K. Williamson, we have the experience and understanding of these tests to block these pieces of evidence and fight the DUI charges you are facing. We will review all details of the case and put the prosecution on the defensive, making it prove every single detail of the case.
If during the stop you refuse to take the Breathalyzer test, you will be charged with implied consent. While you will lose your license for a year, you will avoid many of the more significant penalties.
Breathalyzer machines must be carefully tuned, cleaned and calibrated for accuracy. The officer administering must be thoroughly trained and follow a strict set of guidelines in actually giving the test. It is highly difficult to maintain this level of accuracy. We will obtain all pertinent records and check to find inconsistencies from protocol. Any error can have the test results thrown out.
Blood tests must also be retrieved in a very specific manner and delivered in a tube that is up to certain standards.
To best understand your case, we provide free initial consultations, listening to the details of your case and gathering as much information as possible. To arrange a meeting with a skilled Tennessee criminal defense lawyer, please call our office today at 931-647-8500.
