Ways for DUI defense attorney to attack retrograde extrapolation for Jack

Ways for a DUI defense attorney to attack retrograde extrapolation in NBA Player Jarrett Jack case.

Jack registered a .079 at 5:38 a.m., 90 minutes after the traffic stop so DUI prosecuting lawyers will try to say he was higher at time of driving. Click here to see why that should not work.

He was stopped in his Mercedes-Benz around 4 a.m. for speeding - 66 in a 45 mph zone, defense lawyers are told.

Because the police department's Intoxilyzer was not working, Jack was given the breath estimator test at the Gwinnett County Jail.

"In general, alcohol dissipates from the system at approximately .02 grams per hour," one assuming cop there claims. "Therefore, he would have been over the limit of .08 at the time of the driving infraction." Folks can be charged with DUI-less safe if .05% and higher combined with bad driving: e.g. speeding &/or weaving.
