Can the prosecutor use results of a PBT (Preliminary Breath Test) against me in court?
In St. Louis as well as other parts of Missouri, evidence that you failed a PBT test (Portable Breath Test) is not admissible against you in court for determining your BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) and is grounds for reversal if admitted. The results of a PBT (Personal Breath Test) are not admissible as evidence in court.
You should never drink and drive, but if you’re arrested for drunk driving, a strong defense is important. Call one of our DWI lawyers today at (314) 270-2273 for a free consultation.
