19 year old arrest for DUI?
MY 19 year old son was arrested for DUI on Route 3 in Plymouth. He refused the breathalyzer. We got a notice saying his license was suspended by Massachusetts RMV for 3 years. Can he get the license back if the case is dismissed or he beats the trial?
There are 2 punishments for this, criminal and civil. If you beat the criminal charge, that does not help with the...
Expunged record of a not guilty OUI
Defendant was arrested on an OUI, refused the breathalyzer and the arresting officer said the driver did not pass the sobriety test . The defendants lawyer requested a hearing with a judge , instead of a trial by jury. The entire case was heard and the judge ruled in favor of the defendant NOT GUILTY . Is it the defendants right that this case be expunged including the initial arrest ?
There is essentially no expungement of records in MA. The friend is incorrect. A not guilty finding after a trial is...
How can I articulate that my career is at risk and my rights were not factored into my arrest ?
I had left a party and probably a mile down the road I pulled over in the brake down lane to get the gps on my phone situated to get to my final destination . A few minutes later a state trooper came behind me . Looked into my car and told me to get out . I asked him for what . He stated I had a bottle of alcohol on the back floor of my car , he then said If I was drinking , after he already asked me to get out of my vehicle , I replied I had 2 beers at my friends baby shower , he asked me to turn around and he was placing me under arrest . After getting thrown in the truck , at the station he was finger printing me and said I was resisting arrest . I told him how and the cameras will prove other wise . After finger printing he asked me to take the breathalyzer , I refused because I was already placed under arrest . I was thrown in the cell were my bond was $40.00 and my car was towed .
The best way to address any issues with the stop, having you get out of the car, and the arrest is to find and retain a...

Can I appeal a CWOF I shouldn't have taken when my attorneys erroneously urged me to do it?
My Boston attorneys were well versed in corporate law but not at all knowledgeable aabout district law or DUIs. Example: did not know if license suspension for breathalyser refusal began at arrest for disposition of case. I did NOT refuse the breathalzyser. I am on the booking video saying I have reduced lung capacity due to scholiosis (which I have medical documentatioon of from my pulmonologist). Isaid that I could likely achieve a reading but it would likely take multiple attempts especially since I was upset and exhausted from working till after 10 and preparing for trip to Florida the next day. I tried 2x and he said he wass writing me down as a refusal !!! I repeatedly said I'm not refusing I just need to try more times. I know this because I have taken the breathalyser once before at the court because I threw up on the way to br and they said people that are intoxicated often do that. It took me 5x and was negative. The officer gave me ONE field sobriety test which was for balence(stand on one leg). I explained to him that I could do that test stone cold sober 20 years ago due to the severe scholiosis which could also be documented by my back doctor, xrays, and my personal
You can file a motion to set aside your CWOF, but it's an uphill battle. You have the burden of showing why it should...
