Oakland, California (EastBayDaily) — The law firm of Kapsack & Bair, LLP today announced that they will be conducting an investigation of San Francisco driving under the influence (DUI) cases to determine if any convictions resulted from lack of calibrating preliminary alcohol screening (PAS) devices. From the San Francisco Chronicle and other local sources, on March 5, 2012 San Francisco District Attorney George Gascon and San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi provided evidence that the Police Department had not been properly conducting PAS calibration testing going back at least to 2006.
Kapsack & Bair encourages all individuals who were administered a preliminary (field) breath test by a SFPD officer and convicted of DUI in SF Superior Court since 2006 to contact their San Francisco DUI office. Senior Partner Bruce Kapsack says, “We're looking for all people falsely convicted. It doesn't matter whether we originally handled the case, another private law firm, or even the San Francisco Public Defender. We believe all people deserve justice.”
In addition to phoning the San Francisco office of Kapsack & Bair at (415) 421-1021, people can also email them at the dedicated address of SFPASFRAUD(at)kandblaw(dot)com.
Kapsack & Bair will update news of San Francisco PAS issues on their Blog, DUI Defender, located at http://www.duidefender.org.
