The Impact Of BAC On Your Drunk Driving Case

In most DUI/DWI cases, the prosecution's success depends upon the results of a blood or breath test. These tests measure blood alcohol content, which determines how much alcohol a Missouri driver has in his or her system. Suppression or exclusion of BAC test results will greatly impact the outcome of your case.

My practice focuses on the defense of various types of drunk driving charges. I am attorney Jeff Eastman of the Law Office of Keleher & Eastman. With more than 20 years of experience in DUI defense, my record includes many instances of successfully challenging or limiting the admission of breath, blood and urine test results. You can call my office at 816-452-6030 to learn how I can help you. We serve clients throughout the Kansas City area.

Effectively Challenging BAC Evidence

The way alcohol affects a driver depends on many variables. The amount of alcohol consumed, type of alcohol consumed, rate of consumption, weight and metabolism can impact BAC at any particular moment. Understanding these variables may allow me to assist you in fighting your chemical test result.

I know how to effectively challenge the evidence against you, including the BAC test results. I will thoroughly examine all aspects of any breath, blood or urine tests given and look for opportunities to suppress or exclude the results. Some factors which may affect the admissibility of BAC tests include:

  • Flaws in the testing procedures
  • Gaps in the chain of possession of the blood or urine samples
  • Improper storage techniques
  • Erroneous assumptions
  • Erroneous interpretations
  • Inadequate training of the testing officer
  • Inadequate training of the medical technician conducting the test
  • Improper maintenance or calibration of the testing devices

When it can assist you in the defense of your case, I call upon various experts in toxicology, pharmacology and chemistry. I will explore every option, and if there are issues with the BAC evidence in your case, I will move to have the charges against you reduced or dismissed.
