Blood Alcohol Tests Archives

Florida court rules blood-alcohol evidence admissible in retrial

Drunk driving charges are often bolstered at trial by breath test results or blood-alcohol evidence obtained shortly after a traffic stop. Accordingly, it is usually in the best interest of the individual facing the charges to try to get the evidence excluded from trial.  A Florida man recently attempted to do this at his retrial for DUI manslaughter. The conviction at the first trial the man went through was thrown out after it was discovered that a juror failed to disclose that his former wife had been arrested for DUI.

Blood alcohol test result not admissible in Florida trial

There are several ways in which law enforcement may seek to determine the blood alcohol level of someone suspected of drunk driving. The method that probably comes to mind for most Orlando area residents is a breath test, utilizing a breathalyzer. There are many reasons this test is commonly used including the fact that it can be administered at the scene. Other tests, such a urine or blood cannot be conducted on the scene.
