Hillsborough Judges are deciding whether or not Intoxilyzer 8000 results should be admissible in court following research by experts indicating that the machine may not be reliable. DUI expert witness Stephen Daniels was quoted on 10 News Tampa Bay recently stating that in hundreds of tests no breath volume was reported, which raises the question of how the machine could take a sample with no volume amount. Also, the manufacturer has destroyed the original software, preventing analysts from ever finding out how the machine works.
A Sarasota Judge has already found the results to be inadmissible in Court. Will Hillsborough be next? Stay tuned to The Advocate For You blog for more info.
