Blood Alcohol Content or BAC is simply the amount of alcohol that is in your blood stream. It is generally considered a reliable indicator of intoxication, although different people will feel that they are more or less intoxicated even though they have identical BAC levels.
Just because your “breathalyzer” or blood test result shows that your Blood Alcohol Content (BAC) is above the legal limit does not necessarily mean that you will be convicted (see the “Chemical Test Results” Section of this Website). Nevertheless, your BAC level is very important to your DUI or OVUII case.
In Hawaii, you have committed the offense of DUI or OVUII if you operated a vehicle with .08 or more grams of alcohol per one hundred milliliters or cubic centimeters of blood. The same measurement can be stated as .08 or more grams of alcohol per two hundred ten liters of breath. If the measurement is .15 or more, you could face enhanced punishment as a “highly intoxicated” offender. Also, if you are below the legal age limit, you could be convicted if any “measurable” amount of alcohol is accurately identified in your system.
Obviously, your BAC measurement is very important to you your case. The question becomes whether that measurement is accurate (again see the “Chemical Test Results” Section of this Website). Mr. Holcomb is well-prepared to analyze your BAC measurement and litigate its accuracy.
Below are tables designed to help you estimate where your BAC may fall depending on your weight and how much you have had to drink. These tables are intended only to give you a general idea and under no circumstances should they be relied on to accurately predict whether you are below the legal limit or otherwise intoxicated.
