Posted On October 28, 2009 by Charles Ramsay

Earlier this month, fellow criminal defense lawyer, Ms. Christine Funk interviewed Mr. Charles Ramsay for a segment of her online show, The Crime, Science and Information Show, that provides answers to various questions regarding workings of the law, the judicial system and the principles of forensic science.

Mr. Ramsay met with Christine Funk in order to discuss intoxication laws â?? including what those laws are, evidence and scientific issues concerning those laws and legal challenges that may occur now that evidence and scientific angles are being challenged.

If you have been regularly reading Mr. Ramsay's blog,, you are aware that Mr. Ramsay, along with other criminal defense lawyers throughout Minnesota, has been challenging the source code for the Intoxilyzer. Mr. Ramsay continues to bring to light this issue and uses Ms. Funk's interview platform to bring it to a larger audience.

During the interview, Mr. Ramsay explains the difference between driving while intoxicated (DWI) and driving under the influence (DUI), various tolerance levels for individuals and the government's means for determining an individual's alcohol concentration (urine testing, blood testing, breath testing). He also provides more information on breath test machines and the source code issues breathalyzers face.

Like Charles, Christine believes in knowing the law, the facts surrounding each case and the science behind each case.

Ms. Christine Funk has been with the Public Defenders Office for the State of Minnesota, serving as a member of the Trial Team Office. Christine has made great strides in challenging DNA evidence in cases throughout her career and has strived to make scientific evidence understandable to other lawyers, along with average, ordinary citizens. She hosts the online show, The Crime, Science and Information Show on The Women's Information Network website.
