Breathalyzer in Colorado

Just because you blow over the legal limit, does not mean you have to be convicted of a DUI

The state of Colorado uses the Intoxilyzer 5000 to administer breathalyzer tests. Ann Toney is one of only a few DUI lawyers in Colorado trained on the Intoxilyzer 5000. She has been to multiple trainings and handled many cases involving the intoxilyzer.

As a former DUI prosecutor, Ann Toney knows that prosecutors are typically not trained on the Intoxilyzer. Many prosecutors simply show what the person blew during the field sobriety test and assume the results are accurate. A jury may hear from the prosecutor that someone blew over the legal limit and think that is enough evidence to find them guilty. It might not occur to a jury that the Intoxilyzer may not be working properly or handled properly.
