Westminster OUI Lawyer
A typical question for those charged with OUI in Westminster is can I win my case with a failed breathalyzer test meaning registering above the legal limit of .08. As and experienced Westminster attorney, Michael DelSignore has had success in defending clients who have registered high breathalyzer results. Many attorneys will see the failed test and assume guilt and may suggest a plea deal even if the client feels they have a good defense. An experienced attorney will know a failed test is not conclusive. There are many factors such as a person’s health condition, a faulty breathalyzer machine or an inexperienced officer administering the test may lead to higher results than were warranted. In these cases, attorney DelSignore has great success in suppressing the evidence of the breathalyzer results because of these complications.
Another common point raised by those charged with OUI in Westminster is what are the implications of refusing a breath test. Was that a good decision? Often times when a defendant has refused a breathalyzer test, it will be tougher for the prosecution to prove there was drunk driving. Without a blood alcohol content to rely on, the prosecution will have to rest on the subjective observations of the police officer which can be very unreliable.
You may be concerned of the jury finding out they refused a breathalyzer test and how this may affect the outcome of the case. However, the jury will not be informed of a defendant’s refusal of a breathalyzer test and the prosecution is not permitted to offer any evidence of this refusal. The jury can only rule on the evidence that was presented to them so if no breathalyzer test was presented to them, they will not be able to take anything involving a breathalyzer into consideration.
