You get stopped in Colorado Springs on suspicion of DUI, you claim innocence and demand a blood alcohol test to prove it. Then the crime lab finds your test results really are below the governments arbitrary BAC level of .08 and you truly are innocent. What happens now? Well then the crime lab simply misreports your results as being higher than they actually were and you go to jail of course.
This from the Colorado Springs business journal:
“It was determined that since January 2009, a number of blood alcohol content tests conducted by the Forensic Chemist Unit of the Metro Crime Lab had been erroneously reported higher than the true actual result, police spokesman Lt. David Whitlock said in a statement released this morning.
“During that same time frame, a total of about 1,000 blood alcohol content tests were accomplished by Metro Crime Lab Staff,” Whitlock said, adding that all the samples are being re-analyzed.
