This week, Bellingham DUI attorney, Jonathan Rands, discusses a bill that proposes enabling law enforcement officers to have the ability to draw blood from a person immediately upon suspicion of a DUI. Although officers will be required to become certified technicians by completing thorough Phlebotomy training, the non-sterile environments in which blood could be drawn poses a concern on the validity of blood test results as well as introduces the possibility of malpractice by potentially endangering citizens’ health.
“Jonathan, thank you for bringing the best possible outcome today in my case. It was a humbling and very sobering experience and I am mindful everyday of my personal responsibility and actions and those around me. My career has taken off and I’m glad to have this chapter behind me and will move onward past probation!”Julie
