People v. Pealer, 9

Records pertaining to the routine inspection, maintenance and calibration of breathalyzer machines can be offered as evidence in a criminal trial without producing the persons who created the records because such documents are nontestimonial, and thus, not subject to the Confrontation Clause requirements set forth in Crawford v. Washington.
