DUI/OUI Blood Test
Hundreds of people in Pennsylvania are charged with DUI/OUI offense every month. The usual practice for the arresting officer is to put you through breath and blood tests. Since blood tests are known for more accurate results the officer would ask you to undergo a blood test and refusal can invite license suspension along with other penalties. If your Blood Alcohol Concentration is 0.08% or above in case of adults and 0.02% for people under the age of 21 you can be charged with DUI/OUI offense. However you can challenge the blood test results in the court. To do so you need to get in touch with a seasoned Pittsburgh DUI attorney who specializes in DUI cases.What You Need To Know
As per the laws in the State of Pennsylvania if your blood alcohol concentration is above the permissible limits you can be charged with the offense. The law has given the arresting officers some discretionary powers too and even if the BAC is below .08% or 0.02% you can still be charged based on field sobriety test performance if the arresting officer testifies that your abilities to control the vehicle were impaired by alcohol. The results of the blood test can be challenged in the court and can save you from conviction. Here are some of the things that you need to know about your defense strategy, as a Pittsburgh lawyer can explain:
It can be challenged that the blood sample wasn’t preserved properly and hence produced misleading results
The blood sample was mishandled and was not mixed correctly and therefore gave incorrect figures
The blood samples were contaminated or the test was administered improperly causing the test reports to be erroneous
The blood samples can be independently analysed and these results are admissible in the court thus allowing you to present a strong case for your defense
