Do you know someone who was charged with Driving Under the Influence (DUI) even though he or she provided a breath sample that was lower than .08?
Although .08 is South Carolina’s benchmark for a DUI charge, an officer may suspect a driver is impaired with a smaller blood alcohol concentration.
Attorney Grant Varner with the Greenville, South Carolina firm of Varner and Segura discusses possible actions against drivers providing breath samples from .00 to .08, what an officer might do in each stage, and why an officer might charge a driver with DUI even if that driver blows a sample below the legal limit.
