Brighton DUI Lawyer
A common reason motorists are stopped for drunk driving in Brighton is as a result of a sobriety checkpoint, sometimes referred to as roadblocks. Roadblocks are organized so that every car traveling on a designated road will be stopped. There are many roadblocks on Storrow Drive in Brighton, as they are conducted routinely in that area by the Massachusetts State Police.
Regardless of how your OUI arrest arose, whether through a roadblock or routine motorist vehicle stop, it is important to hire an OUI Lawyer so that you understand your defenses to the case and what evidence may come in at trial. The Massachusetts State Police aggressively patrol Storrow Drive; I have seen state troopers allege lane violations which are actually caused by the nature of the road in that area.
Many who read their police report assume that everything in the police report will be said at trial. This is not the case. Motion hearings are a step in the process of fighting an OUI charge to attempt to exclude evidence from trial. There are other procedures prior to trial to limit what evidence can be heard by the jury.
If you were arrested in Brighton, you can plan on having your case heard at the Brighton District Court. Brighton District Court is located at 52 Academy Hill Road in Brighton in Suffolk County; the Court hears cases from Brighton and Allston and also will hear State Police Arrests; State Police Arrest make up a large portion of the Courts OUI cases.
The Brighton District Court has two sessions: a first session and a trial session. If you have a trial at the Brighton Court, it will be held in the second session court room.

Client arrested by State Trooper found Not Guilty in the Brighton District Court
In this case, the client was arrested by a State Trooper who frequently arrests people for OUI in Brighton. The officer alleged the client was speeding, and weaving through traffic.
