Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.

Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If you want to fight this you have a legal right to do so. Your attorney will want to depose the officer who conducted the breath test to make sure it was done properly and the test was accurate. If the officer did not wait the required amount of time the results could be invalid and a motion to suppress them could be filed which would prevent the reading from coming into evidence. If so, the State would have to rely on the observations of the officer which could prevent them from proving the case beyond a reasonable doubt. You may also want to see if the State offers any type of diversion program you can enter into to get the case dismissed, so your record can be kept clean as a first time offender.
