DWI Arrest Defense and the Failed Breathalyzer
If your DWI arrest involved a Breathalyzer, it is important to hire a criminal defense attorney with in-depth knowledge of Pennsylvania breath test and field sobriety testing procedures. There are many ways to challenge breath tests, including:
- Consulting experts — In the Harrisburg area, law enforcement use the Intoxilyzer 5000 Breathalyzer. We often consult breath test experts to challenge the use of these breath tests and the procedures used by the arresting officer.
- Looking at average body weight — Your blood alcohol content (BAC) varies depending on your height, weight and the number of drinks you have had. We will investigate every aspect of your case in order to show your BAC was in the legal range.
- Investigating other factors — Were there drugs in your system at the time of your Breathalyzer? Did another factor contribute to your failed breath test? We will explore every avenue to help you fight these charges.
What Happens if I Refused the Breathalyzer?
It is often better to fail a Breathalyzer than to refuse to take it. You could lose your license if you refuse a Breathalyzer. If you fail your breath test, however, you may be able to avoid DUI charges and license suspension. If you refused the breath test, our attorneys can help you understand your rights and your legal options.
