Unreliable Breathalyzer Results in MA

In 2011, police departments throughout Massachusetts started using the Draeger Alcotest 9510 breathalyzer machine. Four years into widespread use, it became apparent that the breathalyzers were significantly flawed.

Furthermore, the Office of Alcohol Testing (OAT) intentionally withheld documents showing the devices failed to accurately calculate blood alcohol content (BAC) more than 400 times. These malfunctions caused state prosecutors to avoid using breath test results between June 2011 and mid-April 2019 as trial evidence.

After years of ongoing litigation, a judge found that the breath test results were inaccurate since the Massachusetts OAT failed to properly maintain the breathalyzers. As a result of the judge’s decision, any person who has been convicted based on evidence from the Draeger Alcotest 9510 machine will be able to challenge the conviction and even have their charge dismissed from their record.

In October 2020, over 27,000 Massachusetts residents should receive letters, which state the right to challenge the OUI conviction. The letter will include a special hotline to learn how to properly challenge a conviction.
