Mistakes in Blood Alcohol Tests | Boulder DUI Lawyer

According to CBS Denver, about 1700 blood alcohol samples from tests related to DUI investigations need to be retested, because some of them were found to have mistakes. The tests that were performed by a particular employee of the Colorado Department of Health will be redone because he apparently incorrectly reported the alcohol content of several samples. The employee in question was fired a few days after the first mistake was found. While it is not possible to be sure whether the errors were made intentionally or not, the validity of the blood alcohol testing done by the state on behalf of law enforcement could be questioned.
