Client was arrested and charged with a 4th Offense OUI, along with other counts, after being stopped by police at 1:00am and failing field sobriety tests. He was transported to the station where he was booked and took a breathalyzer with a result of .14 BAC which is almost double the legal limit. Client faced a prison term of up to 2 ½ years in the House of Correction as well as a lengthy loss of license. After doing much discovery, we were able to argue that the police did not comply with the regulations for a proper breathalyzer test. We were able to get the breathalyzer results suppressed at a motion hearing and took the case to trial. Client was found NOT GUILTY after a jury trial.
