Do Prosecutors Trust The Intoxiliar 5000?

Well, Eric Dexheimer, on the Statesman’s Focal Point blog, actually asks the question “Do prosecutors walk the walk with DWI breath tests?”. The answer, of course, is usually a resounding “Hell No!” but a more interesting question is – if you believe me that the answer is “No”- then “Why Not?”

Could it be that as lawyers intimately involved in the criminal justice system, that they know their rights, and when to exercise them?

We advise blood tests in Colorado.

I just had this discussion with an out of county District Attorney. He was irritated that my client had refused the breath test. I told him, "Well, prosecutors and judges don't ever blow in the thing either." Even locally, I can think of two county prosecutors who were arrested for DWI. One gave a breath test and was fired. The other one refused, was later promoted, and it still working there. Actions speak louder than words, eh?
