Breath and Blood Tests
Challenging DWI Evidence in Austin
Whatever the unique or personal circumstances surrounding your driving while intoxicated (DWI) charge may be, the successful resolution of your case is hinged on challenging the DWI evidence. From the arresting procedures used by law enforcement officers to the results obtained in breath or blood tests, the evidence involved in your case must be questioned intelligently, aggressively and with the intention to protect your freedom and future.
With more than 20 years of experience and thousands of cases handled throughout his career, Attorney Richard T. Jones has developed the skills and strategies needed to effectively challenge breath and blood tests, as well as other DWI evidence.
Breathalyzer Tests Breathalyzer tests are often the most common method used to test the blood alcohol concentration (BAC) levels of drivers. Law enforcement officers generally have both field breathalyzers and breathalyzers that remain at the jail. The testing equipment used by officers, particularly in the field, are in no way near perfect. In fact, these breathalyzers are notorious for inaccurate readings and for being easily misled or mistaken by a number of circumstances.
When challenging the results of your breathalyzer test, Attorney Jones conducts meticulous investigations into the records of the testing equipment used, including records of equipment calibration and general maintenance. By using this and additional evidence to challenge the results of a BAC test, Attorney Jones can question their accuracy and establish reasonable doubt that can be utilized to defend against your allegations.
Blood Tests Blood tests, sometimes called chemical tests, can also be used, particularly when an arresting officer may suspect that a driver is under the influence of a controlled substance. Just as with breathalyzer tests, blood tests are also prone to errors and inaccuracies. As such, Attorney Jones works to highlight these findings and to conduct additional investigations that can be used to effectively challenge them. He also examines the conduct of arresting officers and how they informed drivers of their rights to take or refuse testing.
