I just received my BAC results from a blood draw from July 25th this week. How would I go about requesting a outside lab confirm the sample results (or bad sample)? My results came back .155 which I was very surprised, I had 5 beers over a 4 hour period and every BAC calculator I ran the number through had me at .07 as the highest that night. If the outside lab results are lower (hopefully below the .150 enhanced threshold) or show the sample was contaminated I will need a DUI lawyer that has dealt with challenging the conflicting tests.
Out of curiosity, did you ask for the blood to be drawn or did they forcibly draw the blood after an accident?
I was placed on probation last week for wet reckless (originally a minor DUI) in Florida. I haven't met with my probation officer yet. Is it ok to own guns?

I was pulled over on the 25th of July and had blood drawn. I went in to the DHSMV (BAR) office today to apply for my Administrative Suspension informal/formal review. The person at the desk after going through my papers said I haven't been charged yet, I just received a citation, My DL wont be suspended till my blood results are back and the results are .08 or above and am charged. She said when the results are back I will receive a letter/ticket from DMV of the suspension and I have 10 days from that date to request the review. Since tomorrow is the last dayof the 10 days I can apply and she is completely wrong and its from the date I was stopped (date on citation) I would feel a lot better for some confirmation of what she said is correct. It makes sense though. Thanks
