BAC Limit and DUI in Minnesota

During the process of a DUI stop and arrest, police officers will frequently use breath and blood tests to determine a driver's blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level and prove intoxication. Breath tests and blood tests are supposed to determine the amount of alcohol in a person's system. Unfortunately, through human error, faulty machinery and other issues, these tests can be very unreliable.

In the state of Minnesota, the BAC limit is .08. A driver with three prior DUIs in a 10-year period can be charged with a felony.

If you have been arrested for a DUI based on your BAC level, you may be able to challenge the results of the blood or breath test and protect your rights in the process. At Groshek Law, we are familiar with many of the errors and issues that arise during blood and breath tests to derive a faulty BAC level. Attorney Christa Groshek will examine these tests and stand up for your rights when it is determined that they were performed improperly.

While blood and breath tests need to accurately reflect a driver's BAC, mistakes are often made in the process. Blood samples may be taken improperly, contaminated, mislabeled or stored improperly. Police officers and lab technicians must gather and store evidence according to certain procedures.

For breath tests, Breathalyzers, Intoxilyzers and other machines used for breath tests can provide inaccurate results. Machine error, human error and faulty maintenance can all cause inaccurate results.
