Massachusetts Breathalyzer Defense Attorney
After a drunk driving arrest in Worcester, Massachusetts, you will be asked to submit to a chemical test to determine your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) — the level of alcohol in your system. Most often, a breath test will be performed to determine your BAC, but you may request a blood test instead. Although you may have submitted to this test and showed a result of .08 percent or greater (which is above the legal limit in Massachusetts), this does not necessarily mean that you are guilty or should be convicted of operating under the influence (OUI) — the technical term for what most people call DUI.

Did You Know That …
… once a person arrested on suspicion of OUI submits to a Breathalyzer test, he or she is supposed to be observed by the breath test operator for at least 15 minutes before the test is administered? The objective is to make sure that person does not eat, drink, burp or hiccup.
Blood and Breath Test Results and License Suspension
A valid breath test or blood test result of. 08 percent or greater (or .02 percent or greater for underage drivers) will cause the Registry of Motor Vehicles to start proceedings to suspend your driver's license for 30 days. However, if you act within 15 days of the date of your arrest, you have the right to request a registry hearing to challenge the suspension or seek a hardship license.
