Insight from a Denver DUI Defense Attorney

There is a common misconception that if you take a breath test and fail, you will face DUI charges and will be convicted.

Ready to challenge your charges? Obtain legal representation from an experienced Denver DUI attorney who knows how to implement hard-hitting strategies to challenge your breath test results. Attorney Chris Cessna is a certified specialist in DUI defense and understands the frequent inaccuracy of breath tests. He personally owns a breathalyzer 5000 and is highly knowledgeable in finding errors and issues with tests to help strengthen his clients' defenses.

Factors that Affect Chemical Tests

The science surrounding breath and blood tests is highly technical. Breath test machines are measuring an estimate of your BAC, while blood tests are often more accurate. You should know that there are a variety of factors that not only contribute to these tests, but can easily affect them.

Contributing factors that may alter breath test results include:

  • Specific diets
  • Improper machine maintenance
  • Environmental conditions
  • Alcohol, blood, or vomit in the mouth
  • If you are diabetic
  • Tobacco smoke
  • Dentures
  • Broken or faulty breath device

There is also much that an attorney must know about the correct procedures surrounding these tests, and attorney Chris Cessna has the proper training, knowledge, and experience to provide this insight. He has DUI training and certificates, giving him an edge over the prosecution and other lawyers in his field.

Defenses Against DUI Charges

As with any part of an investigation, law enforcement must follow specific procedure and must not violate an arrestee's Constitutional rights. An indiscretion or mistake on the part of the police officer or prosecutors could lead to evidence losing credibility or even admissibility in court. While a mistake in evidence will not get your charges dropped, it can cause the prosecution's case to be too weak to stand in court, eventually either clearing your name or securing lesser charges.

In challenging the outcome of a breath test, a lawyer may be able to bring up important issues about the officer's administration of the test. For example, the officer may not have been trained in administering breath tests or may have made a mistake when administering the test. There may have also been a problem with the breathalyzer machine itself, such as improper calibration or maintenance.
