Breath Tests Are Prone To Inaccurate Results

the breath test

At Andrews & Sanders Law Offices in Savannah, Georgia, I am a criminal defense lawyer defending the rights of clients throughout Georgia who have been charged with DUI as the result of an alcohol breath test using the Intoxilyzer 5000. This breath testing device is prone to inaccuracy, and thereby offers many possible challenges to the prosecution’s breath evidence. I have more training and DUI defense experience than any other attorney in southeast Georgia, and I will put that experience and knowledge to work for you in my aggressive pursuit of your case.

If a law officer pulls you over due to a suspicion that you are operating under the influence, he or she may ask you to perform a number of field sobriety tests, of which the breath test is one. The officer is supposed to advise the suspect that the test is voluntary. Many times, however, they do not. This is a violation of the law. You have the right to refuse the breath test, as well as any other field sobriety test the officer asks you to perform. However, if the officer believes you are intoxicated, he or she may still decide to charge you with a DUI offense.

If you are found guilty of DUI, your refusal to take the initial breathalyzer test could lead to a one year suspension of your driver’s license. That is why it is so important to have an experienced DUI defense attorney on your side. In addition to my experience defending DUI cases, I also teach classes and lead seminars on DUI for other lawyers and police officers. I have a reputation for integrity with law enforcement officials throughout southeast Georgia.

If you have been charged with DUI and submitted to, or refused a breath test, call Andrews & Sanders Law Offices today at 912-341-6861 for a free initial phone consultation. Or you can contact me by email. I will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
