One of the main reasons that individuals arrested for Drunk Driving in New Jersey opt to plead guilty, rather than allow an attorney to defend them, is because they feel that the evidence against them is overwhelming. Because they may have performed poorly on a field sobriety test or had a blood test resulting in a 0.08% blood alcohol content (BAC) or higher, they might assume that there isn't a DWI attorney in New Jersey that can overcome the evidence against them. However, there are sometimes ways for an experienced DWI lawyer to challenge the evidence, or the methods used to collect it.
DWI Blood Testing In New Jersey
It is not out of the ordinary for a blood test to be required during a DWI/DUI investigation. Some of the reasons a blood test might be require is when the breath test equipment isn't working properly, if the suspect of a DWI had an accident and was taken to the hospital or if the suspect is thought to be under the influence of drugs. A blood test might be the only way to determine the level of intoxication in a suspect.
Blood Test Challenges In New Jersey
In order to obtain a blood test result, a licensed medical professional must be used. An attorney will obtain copies of the administering medical personnel's license to ensure they are current and in proper order to perform a blood test for alcohol and drugs. In addition, the lab that tested the blood sample will be investigated by the attorney. If it appears that any contamination may have occurred, or if there was not enough of a sample to properly test and retest if required, the blood results may be challenged.
