More cases than previously thought affected by botched brethalyzer kits

    More than 1,100 DUI cases in Philadelphia have been compromised due to improperly calibrated breathalyzer tests. That’s the number Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey gave at a press conference today. It’s more than double the original estimate, and the number could grow.

    WHYY’s Jen Howard was at the news conference, and will bring us the full story later.
