Gwinnett County Criminal Defense Lawyer

How to Challenge BAC Evidence in a Georgia DUI Case

Have you been arrested for a suspected DUI? If so, you may be wondering how to find a criminal defense attorney who can help you avoid the serious charges and penalties of a DUI conviction. Our firm provides legal representation to individuals in Lawrenceville, as well as throughout Gwinnett County, who have found themselves facing drunk driving charges. Our attorneys have a clear understanding of DUI laws. We also have the skills necessary to uncover discrepancies in the arrest process that can be used to successfully challenge BAC evidence.

When an officer makes a traffic stop, he or she must have probable cause to do so. After the stop has been made, the primary objective of the officer is to justify the stop and gather sufficient evidence to warrant you being placed under arrest for a suspected DUI. A failed field sobriety test, a BAC level of 0.08 percent or greater, and a refused chemical test are all reasons an individual could be arrested and charged with DUI. No matter what type of BAC evidence has been gathered against you, nor what the prosecution may lead you to believe, a conviction is not guaranteed.

In these types of situations, it is important you exercise your right to remain silent and have a lawyer present during questioning. Anything you say could be used as evidence against you. Your statements could also make it difficult, if not impossible, for an attorney to challenge the BAC evidence against you and get your case dismissed. Breath, blood and other chemical tests are not infallible. Our attorney can conduct a thorough investigation into the circumstances surrounding your arrest to determine if:

  • The officer violated your rights
  • The officer had been properly trained on administering such a test
  • The testing machine was improperly calibrated
  • The machine malfunctioned
  • There were environmental factors that could have contributed to a false reading

Mouth alcohol and certain physiological or medical conditions can also have an adverse effect on BAC readings. If you need help challenging BAC evidence, you have come to the right place.
