According to laws and regulations of the state that if you are caught for DUI, you will have to give blood or breath test and its refusal can lead you to severe charges. Law enforcement officials will demand you to do voluntary field sobriety test. If you reject to carry out the field sobriety test, the officers will arrest you and ask you to give chemical testing. The chemical tests identify your Blood Alcohol Content. If its amount greater than 0.08% then you will be charged for DUI and your driving rights will be terminated. Chemical testing is performed by using breath test or blood test.
Breath test is also known as a breathalyzer test. The breath test is much less precise compared to a blood test. Law enforcement use breath tests to check that a driver is driving while intoxicated of alcohol. The Breath Test is utilized to calculate the Blood Alcohol Concentration of the suspect. The breath test is performed by breathing into an apparatus that calculates one’s BAC from the breath. It’s not considered the best method to identify Blood Alcohol Content. For this reason, it is not admissible in the court. The second test in the police station is believed more accurate and is used when the state is building its case against a driver.
There are two basic kinds of breath tests which can be utilized by police force agencies to figure out whether an individual’s Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) is above the appropriate limit. The first is a portable breath testing device and the second is a breath testing device which is used in the police station. A breath test machine must be thoroughly adjusted before a breath test is conducted. These machines are designed to test and calculate air in the lungs for alcohol. If u refuse to give blood or breath test your driver’s license will be suspended. There are several breath devices currently used by different law enforcement agencies in Los Angeles. It doesn’t matter what breath device is used, there’s one reality that is typical to all of them. They’re offered to wrong results, inappropriate care and incorrect administration.
To collect proof that the individual was driving while impaired of alcohol or drugs, police must acquire a blood test from the individual’s blood. Blood test is a precise and efficient solution to identify the Blood Alcohol Content over a breath test. Blood test calculates the level of alcohol in the suspect’s blood vessels. The quantity of alcohol inside an individual’s blood vessels attains its maximum amount around an hour once they’ve finished drinking. This method requires the sample of blood from the suspect.
This test is taken at the station or hospital. The sample is inserted into a bottle with specific chemicals. These chemical substances prevent the blood by clotting and protect the sample until it can be analyzed. This sample is delivered to a criminal offense laboratory and an independent laboratory, where the sample of your blood is analyzed to find out your exact Blood Alcohol Concentration. Only skilled people who are expert in drawing blood are capable of doing a blood test on you, since the method that the blood is drawn may have an immediate effect on the end results of the test. The final results are delivered to the police force that asked for the blood draw. You can also ask for an independent blood test as well.
Sometimes a breath test can render a wrong reading. Sometimes the blood or breath test was administered improperly.
In the state of California, as with the rest of the country, the legal limit for drivers 21 years of age and over is 0.08. This means that it is legal for drivers to have some amount of alcohol in their system when they get behind the wheel but it can be very difficult to know if you’ve had too much to drink to legally drive. It also can be difficult for the police and their equipment to determine this. But if you have been charged for a DUI, make sure to speak to a Solano County DUI lawyer immediately for legal help.
Almost all DUIs in the state of California are charged as misdemeanors and are punishable by up to a year in jail and a fine of up to $2000. There are only three ways in which a DUI can be charged as a felony:
Felony DUI convictions can result in much more severe punishments than a simple misdemeanor. This can include extended prison time, increased fines, extended license revocation, felony probation, mandatory rehabilitation, etc. Having a felony on your record can affect your life in many different ways. Make sure to speak to a Solano County DUI lawyer if you’ve been charged for a DUI.
There are some things to keep in mind when you are stopped for a DUI. Though you are probably reading this because you have already been arrested for a DUI, this information is good to know for future instances and can help you determine if there was misconduct in your arrest.

This is my second time hiring Mr. Choyce for my son, who was charged with a criminal act. Both times that I hired Mr. Choyce, I was very impressed with his knowledge of the law, his professionalism, and the fact that he was relatable. He is trustworthy, tells you the truth about what you are facing. He is organized, he is a very good listener, came up with strategies that were appealing.I can’t say enough good about Mr. Choyce! I knew that he was going to give my son’s case everything he had, and he did!
Hiring the Choyce Law Firm was the best decision I made while trying to decide what to do after getting charged with a 3rd DUI. I tried to use a lawyer that I had previously used when in trouble with the law, he was near retirement and wasn’t able to give my case the attention I was looking for understanding that I was facing jail time. When contacting Mr Choyce we discussed my case and he told me he could help, he even knew my previous attorney. Mr Choyce was aggressive in fighting my case with filing motions on my behalf an trying to get my case dismissed, I was very pleased that he was not just looking to get the first deal the D.A. offered but was aggressively trying to win my case. Although we were not able to get the dismissal we were looking for he was able to keep me out of jail an I was able to serve my sentence on the EHD Program, which allowed me to keep my job an that was very important to me. Mr Choyce also handled a second case for me, I was charged with driving on a suspended license and no registration. Once again Mr Choyce was aggressive with this case and took it to trail an was able to get a not guilty verdict, which saved me a great deal of money in fines that would be pending with a guilty verdict. Overall hiring Mr Choyce and his team was the best decision I made, he provided great service at a respectable rate, an explained things as they were happening and with the charges I was facing I was very happy with the outcome of my cases that he handled. I would strongly recommend Mr Choyce and his team to anyone I know that needs legal representation he knows the law and will provide you with the best service you could hope for form a lawyer that wants to win.
“This is my second time using Mr. Choyce, and I would choose no one other than him. Both times that I hired him, it was for my son, and they were very serious cases. Mr. Choyce is smart, professional, practical, and relatable. He is a serious person, who listens, speaks in laymens terms, so that you understand what is going on. Not like some that I have experience, who talk over you, and dont take the time to really answer your questions.The second case got very close to going to trial, however, I was confident that I had the best of the best representing my son. Thank God that after willing to go to trial, we got a deal that, I think was a win win.I would definitely, without a question, hire Mr. Choyce again!”
