The Tennessee Blood Alcohol Report

In Tennessee DUI cases , a blood alcohol amount can be reported in blood alcohol level or blood alcohol levels . In blood cases , the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has to generate a report . It must contain the following information pursuant to Tennessee Code annotated 55-10-408 (b).

1.The name of the accused.

2.The date , time and by whom the speciman was received and examined.

3.A statement of the alcohol concentration or presence of drugs contained in the speciman.

Normally , I don't review this statute often . However , the time of collection is usually noted on the report. The time of collection is important because that is the time of the blood alcohol level. I have a case where the collection time is not noted. It could be argued that the blood alcohol report does not comply with the statute.

The takeaway is  a skilled DUI lawyer must examine all the defects in the case.
