Blood, Breath and Urine DUI Tests

Boise DUI Attorney With Answers About the Law on DUI Tests

Idaho police are hard core on DUI. They use many methods to arrest people for drunk driving and to make sure that the prosecutor gets a conviction. When you have been arrested, it is especially important that you work with a defense lawyer who examines every part of your case to keep the police in check.

When I — DUI attorney Gerald Bublitz — take your DUI case, I dig deep. At my Boise, Idaho, law firm, I look at every aspect of your case to find police errors. Sometimes, an error in administration of blood, breath or urine tests can help me beat your case.

Should I Have Refused the DUI Test?

Many people worry that they should have refused the DUI test. Whether or not to take a DUI test is often a judgment call based on your individual circumstances. Idaho has an implied consent law that requires vehicle drivers to submit to a chemical test, like a blood, breath or urine test, if they are suspected of DUI. Refusing a chemical test may lead to loss of your driver's license for a year. And refusing a breath test can mean that police can perform a forced blood draw.

If you did not refuse the DUI test, there may still be ways that we can have the results excluded from your case. Results are sometimes inaccurate. Idaho law defines drunk driving as driving with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of .08 or more. But, if the test was administered incorrectly or too late, it may reflect the wrong BAC. Working with a forceful and experienced attorney can help protect your rights when it comes to excluding a blood, breath or urine test.
