Benham Sims III interviewed re: BA machine source code ruling

 Can eating a slice of bread give false positive BA reading? 

Jan. 31, 2008 -  WHAS Channel 11 television interviewed Louisville attorney Benham Sims III on the recent Ct. of Appeals ruling that permitted defense attorneys to subpoena the source code of the Intoxilyzer 5000 BA machine. Sims is the author of a book on DUI law and has served as a District Judge and as a prosecutor handling DUI cases.

Defense attorneys say that they will have the computer software source code reviewed by experts to determine if the BA machine as used in Ky. is subject to false readings.

The interview claims one machine found a person had consumed alcohol merely by eating a piece of bread.  See this interesting interview at:  Breathalyzer controversy
