alcohol breath tests can no longer be used in court until ...
A Massachusetts judge has ruled that alcohol breath tests can no longer be used in court until the state agency overseeing how they’re maintained undergoes major reforms. “Until the office of alcohol testing solves this problem and shows the judge they can get their act together, no police officer is going to be able to use the evidence gathered in court. That’s a problem,” said 7News Legal Analyst Tom Hoopes. The judge found the state agency wasn’t telling the truth about how the tests were maintained and that the courts couldn’t trust their results. “They hadn’t done the maintenance they hadn’t done the calibration. The training was poor on all of those things, so now what he’s saying is going forward you have to show me you’ve done things correctly, that people are trained to do this correctly,” Hoopes said.
