BAC

Were You Recently Arrested for DUI?

When an individual is pulled over because they are suspected of driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, it is likely that law enforcement will request that they submit to field sobriety tests and chemical testing such as a breathalyzer, blood or urine screening to determine their blood alcohol content (BAC). Currently, Kansas utilizes the Intoxilyzer 8000 to measure blood alcohol by testing a persons breath. For a BAC greater than .08%, for those over 21, or higher than .02%, for anyone under the legal drinking age, an arrest will be made.

If you or someone you care about has recently been arrested for DUI based on the results of a breathalyzer, blood or urine test, it is vitally important that you immediately seek the legal representation of a highly qualified Kansas DUI attorney that is well versed and experienced in cases of this nature. There are many defensive strategies that can be employed to help you win your case, but it is very likely that the results will be much more favorable with an attorney on your side that has a proven ability to produce the outcome you need. While blood tests are the most reliable procedure for testing blood alcohol concentration, they can be wrong.
