Technical problems could overturn recent drunk driving convictions in Massachusetts

As reported by MyFoxBoston.com, technical problems could overturn many recent drunk driving convictions in Massachusetts.

The issue involves the use of faulty breathalyser machines. According to the Salem News, prosecutors have started notifying defense attorneys about the problem.

Apparently, a solution used in the machines is causing them to produce improper test results.

The Essex County District Attorney has told all prosecutors to stop using breathalyzer results in pending cases.

It is not known when the problem started, or how many past cases could be called into question
