The Scottsdale City Crime Lab – after a number of months in the news – has lost its last remaining forensic scientist that was testing blood for alcohol.
This will likely have an effect on pending cases, but going forward the City of Scottsdale has elected to also use Intoxilyzer 8000 machines to test breath alcohol concentrations. It is anticipated that Scottsdale Police will still be drawing blood, but the samples will be sent to the Arizona Department of Public Safety Crime Lab in the interim.
If you or a loved one has a pending DUI case in the City of Scottsdale, it is imperative that you contact Thompson & Volquardsen, P.C. to discuss the effects of the recent change.
