Will I Get A DUI Conviction If I Fail My Breathalyzer Test?

Not necessarily. During a traffic stop for DUI, while it may seem inevitable that a guilty conviction will occur if you fail a breathalyzer test, that is simply not true. Every person charged with a criminal offense is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.

Pursuant to South Carolina law, when administering a breathalyzer or blood test, police officers are required to follow proper procedure in order to be able to use the results of the test in court to try to convict someone of DUI. Hiring an experienced DUI attorney is crucial because DUI laws in South Carolina are some of the most complicated criminal statutes. Experienced DUI criminal attorneys will know if the police officers made a mistake while administering the breathalyzer or failed to comply with the statute in other ways. Another procedural mistake can often occur with the breathalyzer equipment itself if it is not calibrated up to specifications.

At Young & Young, Attorneys at Law, both partners were former prosecutors and one was a former judge who are seasoned litigators of DUI cases. Young & Young, Attorneys at Law has the experience to immediately get to work on the details of your case and find where errors have been made by the police.  Young & Young's experience will increase you or your loved one's chances of have your DUI dismissed and any other negative consequences stemming from the new DUI laws in South Carolina. Please call us today at (843)724-1563 for a free consultation.
