Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Criminal Law litigation attorney here to assist you.
I would recommend that you have a local DUI attorney review your case since your reading was so close to the legal limit of .08. All intoxilyzer tests have a margin of error of up to 10%. Thus, an attorney may be able to have the results thrown out based on the margin of error.
Also, if there was no probable cause for you being stopped, you'd have the ability to claim this as well.
Because of the risk involved with you losing your job, you really have no choice but to defend yourself and try to get the ticket dismissed.
