OUI Second Offense Wins

'Supremely Professional & Organized'
Not Guilty 2nd OUI

Call Damian:
508.353.5133

Damian's Case

Damian admitted to drinking 4 beers. His eyes were bloodshot and glassy. Despite 2 attempts, he couldn't stand on one leg for more than five seconds. I elicited testimony from the officer that he showed nothing wrong with his fine motor skills while producing his documents, Also that he was able to exit the car and walk without any signs of intoxication. Though past midnight, the cop never asked if he'd worked all day or slept the night before. Once the jury found him not guilty I convinced the judge to sign an order lifting the three year refusal suspension.

'Joe was supremely prepared, professional and organized.'

Whose 2nd OUI Cases We Have Won:

CASE DISMISSED
LICENSE RETURNED


TIM 774-417-3068

Two troopers saw me accidentally drive into a snow bank. They wrote in their reports that my eyes were bloodshot and glassy and that they had to ask me three times for my drivers license. I couldn't stand in the difficult heel to toe position during the nine step test. They arrested me and charged me with second offense drunk driving, negligent driving, and an open container of alcohol. On the first trial date neither trooper showed up. On the second trial date when neither of them showed, Joe immediately brought a motion to dismiss all charges. The judge agreed. Joe then asked for an immediate hearing to restore my license. The judge did so and overturned my three-year refusal suspension.

NOT GUILTY
FAILED ALL FIELD TESTS


JOSE 617-308-7811

Cop found Jose asleep in his car facing wrong way on a 1-way street. He couldn't find his license for 3 minutes. Then he failed the one leg stand and 9-step walk and turn tests. We immediately filed a motion to preserve the booking video.

At trial, I convinced the judge the extremely cold weather [cop's pen stopped working!] and the lateness of the hour explained his performance at roadside. Plus, his good appearance on the booking video created reasonable doubt. The judge found him not guilty and lifted the three year refusal suspension so he's driving again and kept his job.

'Joe and James are two incredible attorneys.'

Somerville District Court, 2018

 

NOT GUILTY
DESPITE 2 INCRIMINATING STATEMENTS


DARIN 774-232-4990
Joe blew me away. He is quick, smart, and fast. He won a motion to throw out two incriminating statements I made to the police. That helped us win a not guilty at trial even though the cop said I failed all the roadside tests. That win prevented the loss of my job - good thing because my wife was pregnant.

'I couldn't recommend him more highly.'

Westborough District Court

 

The Massachusetts OUI law is M.G.L. c. 90 sec. 24.

A second offense carries the following potential penalties

  • Jail in a house of correction up to 2.5 years
  • License loss of up to five years
  • Fines up to $10,000
  • Mandatory alcohol treatment program
  • Two years of probation
  • Mandatory installation of a breathalyzer (ignition interlock device) in all vehicles you own, operate or control
  • Driving a vehicle without a breathalyzer (interlock) after a second OUI conviction results in a mandatory minimum six months jail sentence and additional ten-year loss of license

ALTERNATIVE DISPOSITION

A common alternative sentence to avid jail results in a suspended jail sentence of 60 days to 2.5 years (meaning you don’t have to go to jail if you complete probation successfully), two weeks in an inpatient alcohol treatment program at Tewksbury state hospital for which you must pay $1400). At least one year of weekly aftercare meetings at $40/per meeting.

12-HOUR HARDSHIP LICENSE

If you complete the treatment program successfully and are otherwise in compliance with probation, you are eligible to apply for a 12-hour hardship license one year before your suspension expires.
