Blood Alcohol Concentration

DUI Defense Attorney in Marietta, GA

Blood alcohol concentration is the amount of alcohol present in the blood. The number of drinks a person consumes is a poor measure of blood alcohol concentration due to variations in body weight and body fat amongst individuals and between the sexes. For law enforcement purposes, a blood alcohol concentration of 0.08 percent constitutes drunk driving and is something that can be measured and established in a court of law through blood, breath, or urine tests. The amount of alcohol it takes to reach this level varies with the individual.

For anyone facing a DUI charge, based on alcohol or drugs, it is important to seek qualified professional legal assistance. Please contact Attorney Glasgow for an initial consultation about your DUI circumstances. As a former prosecutor and Marietta DUI lawyer, he can provide a thorough and comprehensive defense strategy. The Glasgow Law Firm serves all prospective clients in Atlanta and Athens, Georgia, as well as the surrounding counties of Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Forsyth, Henry Clayton, Rockdale, Douglas, Cherokee, Pickens, and Paulding.

Blood Alcohol Concentration in DUI Cases

Blood alcohol concentration can result in worsening impairment of the ability to drive as the alcohol percentage increases. Impairment may include loss of concentration, depth perception, peripheral vision, reasoning, reaction time, reflexes, and gross motor control. Impairment may result in staggering, slurred speech, and severe loss of motor skills.

Blood alcohol concentration must be proven in a court of law to convict a person of a DUI. Therefore the administration of the BAC tests must be valid and accurate and administered according to law. At the police station, a person suspected of drunk driving or driving under the influence of drugs will be given a chemical test. If the person refuses to submit to such a test, he or she will automatically lose driving privileges for up to a year in Georgia.
