The Groton police arrested the defendant after allegedly speeding, failing a number of the field sobriety tests, and telling the officers that they consumed alcohol. The breath test result was ultimately excluded from evidence at trial due to pending litigation, so Attorney DelSignore moved to take the case to trial as quickly as possible. At trial, Attorney DelSignore highlighted the positive aspects of the client’s case, including the correctly-performed field sobriety tests. After trial, the client was found not guilty.Under 21 Client found not guilty after trial in the Ayer District Court
Not only was the client under the age of 21 when he was arrested and charged with OUI, he was also an active college student; he was arrested in Boxborough and was alleged to have failed field sobriety tests, alcohol in the car, had bloodshot and glassy eyes, and was unstable while outside of his car. Attorney DelSignore was effectively able to cross examine the arresting officer at trial, resulting in the client being found not guilty of OUI. Because of the client age, he would have been subjected to harsher license penalties but was able to avoid any further punishment after being found not guilty.OUI 2nd Case: Client found Not guilty in Ayer!
In this case, the defendant was alleged to have crossed the marked lanes, told the arresting officer he had too much to drink before getting behind the wheel, failed the field sobriety tests, and had open bottles of alcohol in the vehicle. At trial, the defendant testified, which rebutted much of the officers’ claims. Because the defendant was found not guilty after trial, he avoided a mandatory inpatient program as well as a two-year license loss.

In this case, our client was involved in a three-car car accident. When police responded to the scene, they formed the opinion that our client had slurred speech, smelled like alcohol, and had bloodshot and glassy eyes. At trial, we called several witnesses and used the booking video and 911 call from the night of the defendants arrest. Using these key pieces of evidence, we were able to show the judge that the defendant did not actually have slurred speech as the officer claimed. After trial, the defendant was found not guilty, avoiding any criminal conviction on her record.
