According to the Denver Legal News Examiner and many other news media outlets, the Colorado Springs Police Department crime lab discovered that 82 blood samples taken since January, 2009, were found to have lower blood alcohol concentration levels than initial test samples showed. Now, over 1,000 blood samples are being retested for accuracy. Prosecutors are already contacting defense attorneys for past clients may have been effected by the new discoveries.
