If I Failed a Breathalyzer Test, Will I Be Convicted?

If I Failed a Breathalyzer Test, Will I Be Convicted?

It is not uncommon for individuals who have been placed under arrest after failing a breathalyzer test to wonder if that failed breathalyzer test means that they will be convicted of DUI. Failing a breathalyzer test does not guarantee a conviction. There are many reasons why an individual may fail a breathalyzer test, and there are even more ways in which the results of these types of tests can be successfully challenged.

If your lawyer can prove the test was not properly administered, the testing equipment was faulty, there were other extenuating circumstances, the police had no reason to pull you over in the first place or your rights were violated in any other way, he may be able to file a motion to get the evidence against you suppressed. Without the ability to use your breathalyzer test as evidence in your case, the prosecution will have little choice but to dismiss any charges that have been filed against you.
