Fighting Blood Alcohol Content Evidence

Rochester DWI Lawyer Explains Your Options

Being accused of a drunk driving offense in Rochester can carry serious penalties, ranging from time behind bars to fines and other repercussions lasting years beyond the initial arrest. One of the most significant factors that determines what kind of sentencing you may find yourself facing is the results of a breath, blood, or urine test. These tests measure your blood alcohol content, which is the primary determination of whether or not you were breaking the law. In New York State, it is prohibited for a driver to drive a car with a BAC over 0.08%.

Attorney Christopher K. Rodeman is a Rochester DWI defense lawyer with over 15 years of experience serving the community in Upstate New York. As a former DWI Bureau Chief in Monroe County, he knows all of the ways that BAC may not tell the true story in a DWI arrest- and can help you fight back against accusations.

What Affects Blood Alcohol Content?

The premise of a minimum BAC results from the premise that alcohol affects the body and that this interaction affects your ability to drive a car. When you consume alcohol, it is absorbed into your bloodstream and eliminated at a steady rate as it is oxidized within the body and excreted from the body as well. Someone’s BAC largely depends on the total amount of drinks that you have consumed, how long of a period those drinks were consumed within, and how long it has been since your last alcoholic beverage.

Important factors that can affect a person's blood alcohol content include:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Rate of alcohol consumption
  • Strength of the drink
  • Body type and weight
  • Fat and muscle content
  • Metabolism
  • Emotional state
  • Medications
  • Food eaten
  • Alcohol intolerance

Therefore, while BAC is assumed to be an exact science, there are many factors that can have a drastic impact. When you have been stopped for a DWI and your BAC has been tested, you need to speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Nothing is ever as it seems, and my firm can help you determine what factors have affected your driving and BAC levels.

BAC testing is usually done by taking a blood sample, utilizing a breathalyzer, or testing the urine of someone assumed to be driving under the influence. Considering the wealth of factors that make a difference when determining BAC levels, these tests may not provide an accurate representation of the accused’s ability to operate a vehicle or even their expected BAC while behind the wheel.
