Breath & Blood Tests in Prince George's County

Retain a DUI Attorney with Prosecutorial Experience

Breath and blood tests are frequently administered by a police officer who has stopped an individual suspected of DUI. These are two means of determining your blood alcohol content (BAC), which cannot be higher than .08% when operating a vehicle. If you failed a breath or blood test and were charged with a DUI, get in touch with our Prince George's County DUI lawyer right away!

You are legally obligated to take either a breath or blood test by the Implied Consent law. This means that if you refuse to take either test, you will automatically lose your driver's license. Your refusal can also be seen as an admission of guilt in court.

Maryland DUI Punishments

You need a DUI lawyer who will do all they can to keep you from a conviction. Even for a first DUI, your sentence could include a $1,000 fine, a 120 days suspension of your license, and up to a year in jail. Furthermore, any additional DUI convictions bring even harsher penalties.

Although failing a blood or breath test can be strong evidence against you, Gracia & Mintz knows how to challenge such evidence. There are many limitations and weaknesses in both breath and blood results and our legal team can hone in on these.

Potential errors in DUI tests include:

  • Breathalyzers require regular calibration or it can give faulty readings
  • Extreme heat or cold and the presence of certain substances can affect a Breathalyzer
  • Older Breathalyzers cannot differentiate between ethanol and similar chemicals like acetone
  • Mouth alcohol can be present from belching due to acid reflux, giving false readings
  • Varying rates of alcohol absorption can affect the amount of alcohol on the breath
