Faulty Breathalyzers in Ventura County May Lead to Overturned DUIs
If you were recently convicted of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol (DUI) or if you have a current DUI case pending in Ventura County, you might be in luck! Last week the Ventura County District Attorney’s Office reported that faulty breathalyzers were used to measure blood-alcohol levels in 294 court cases. Out of these 294 court cases, 137 cases are still pending. However, in 157 of these cases, the defendants were convicted of DUI.
The device in question is the Alco-Sensor V Breathalyzer Device. This device is commonly used by law enforcement when conducting DUI investigations. The Alco-Sensor V Breathalyzer, used throughout Ventura County, had a defective mouthpiece which resulted in irregular readings. It was sent back to the manufacturer to be checked and in the meantime, law enforcement officials in Ventura County will be using the Alco-Sensor IV Breathalyzer Device, an older model.
I will definitely be interesting to see how many convictions get overturned and how many pending cases get dismissed as result of thefaulty breathalyzer. Wallin and Klarich will definitely continue to monitor this very closely.
