BAC/ BrAC & Your Alcohol Absorption and Elimination

BAC/ BrAC & Your Alcohol Absorption and Elimination

When someone is arrested for DWI, the police will ask them to give them a sample of your breath or your blood. They ask this in order to be able to use the Breath Alcohol Concentration (BrAC) or Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) against that person in court. In Texas, a person cannot have a BrAC or BAC over .08. Many people think that once they have given a sample of their breath or blood and it is over .08, they will automatically lose their DWI case. This is not true. First and foremost both the Intoxylizer 5000/ 9000 and the blood testing done in the lab are not rock solid evidence. They are both subject to having issues on a regular basis which can be beneficial to your case. You need a trained attorney who knows what to look for when evaluating whether the tests were done properly and whether the result “makes sense” given all the information that is known. One component a trained attorney should consider is your rate of alcohol absorption and elimination. The State is required to prove that you were “intoxicated” or had a BAC/ BrAC over .08 AT THE TIME OF DRIVING. Absorption and elimination rates have a lot to do with this. Ashley L. Anderson has been trained and knows how to properly evaluate breath and blood testing measures, as well as a person’s absorption and elimination rate to ensure the evidence the State is trying to use against you is valid.
