Factors in Alcohol Absorption

Posted by Richard Lawson | Apr 01, 2011 | 0 Comments

Experienced Hall County DUI lawyer Richard Lawson exhaustively reviews the evidence in his client's DUI cases.  One such matter of evidence, the results of a blood or breath test, can be challenged.  Understanding the science behind DUI and blood and breath testing is important.

Breath tests are often inaccurate.  However, even if they were accuracy, the number that you blew, your BAC reading, was your BAC
when the test was administered, not at the time you were driving.  The length of time that elapsed between the breath test at the jail and the time you were driving is important.  Your sex, weight, metabolic rate, stomach contents, as well as other factors influence the way the individual driver metabolizes alcohol, so the Hall County prosecuting attorneys and law enforcement officers are doing some guesswork here and holes can be punched in their reasoning.  Your BAC may be higher later as there is increased alcohol absorption and the rate may have been lower at the time you were actually driving.    

If you are unjustly charged with DUI, call Gainesville DUI attorney Richard Lawson today for a free consultation.  Effective challenges can be raised to these charges and Mr. Lawson has a great track record for getting charges reduced or dismissed and winning cases in the courtroom.
