.35% BAC – Dui Defense Attorney Wins Another Jury Trial

The Law Offices of Manuel J. Barba recently represented a female client who was arrested for VC23152 (b) – driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or more.  The prosecution’s blood test result was .35% blood alcohol concentration.

This is far past the legal limit and also a concentration amount not typically seen as it was so high.During the discovery process it became apparent to attorney Barba that the method of analysis of the blood sample by the crime lab was flawed and therefore the blood sample result (.35%) could not be accurate.  In addition it was discovered that the handling of the blood sample compromised the integrity of the blood sample thus making the alleged result (.35%) unreliable.

After a week-long trial at the Larson Justice Center in Indio, CA in Riverside County, the jury was split (10 for Not Guilty and 2 for Guilty) as to whether the client was driving with a blood alcohol concentration of .08% or more.  The charge was dismissed.
