Judge Rules DUI Tests in Scottsdale, AZ to be Unreliable.

Ignition Interlock AZA Maricopa County Superior Court Judge’s ruling this week could affect hundreds of current DUI cases in Scottsdale, Arizona. Blood evidence could possibly be thrown out after the accuracy of blood-testing equipment for Blood alcohol content (BAC)  in the Scottsdale Police Department’s crime lab was called “unreliable” & “inaccurate”. Defence attorneys have called the crime lab staff  untrustworthy and misleading in their testimony. Court documents have been recently released showing the Scottsdale Police Department have known about these troubling  issues for over three years.

The judge’s ruling states:

Although there are policies and procedures that purport to act as safeguards, it is apparent that they haven’t been sufficient.”
