In a criminal case, the prosecutor must prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. They will normally use four different aspects to prove his/her case:
Field Sobriety Tests
Blood/Breath Test Results
If one of these points can be proven inaccurate, the prosecutor will be unable to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt and you may be acquitted.
A good DUI defense attorney will try to refute the claims made against his/her client. An example of this is the field sobriety test. How many people can normally perform the tasks necessary to pass this physical test? Juries will understand that nervousness can make these tests difficult to pass.
Knowledge of the blood/breath tests is also important in winning a case. Linda Callahan is one of a few lawyers in the state who has learned the science and mechanics of breath testing from the company that manufactures all evidential breath test machines for the State of Washington. Ms. Callahan can conduct experiments on clients to determine whether certain substances could affect their breath test.
