After reviewing the case with her, Attorney DelSignore suggested that going to trial was the best option.

Attorney DelSignore argued that these standard field tests were not designed to fit someone like the client in this case and despite that he did very well on the tests. Further, Attorney DelSignore emphasized that the lack of any serious erratic driving makes the Commonwealth’s case very difficult to prove. A jury is instructed that the Commonwealth does not need unsafe or erratic driving to prove an OUI charge, but this does not lessen the importance of the evidence.

The officer testified that my client had an odor of alcohol, bloodshot glassy eyes and slurred speech. The officer also testified that my client failed field sobriety tests. At trial, Attorney DelSignore pointed out that the odor could not have been strong if it was not smelled in the booking area and that the client performed very well on the field sobriety tests. Attorney DelSignore argued that the client basically based the field sobriety tests so those results create an inconsistency between the argument that the defendant was impaired. In other words, all of the evidence does not line up. When evidence does not line up, there should be reasonable doubt. In this case, the defendant was found not guilty after trial as Attorney DelSignore’s argument was credited and the client acquitted of OUI.

Quincy District Court: 2 nd Offense with civilian witness involved in an accident not guilty after trial In this case, our client was involved in a rear end accident.

It is important to always figure out how a witness can help the case even if it seems as though the witness will offer no useful evidence. Usually there is a way to attack a witness that will help the defense establish reasonable doubt. After trial, the client was found not guilty, avoiding a substantial license loss associated with a second offense.

At trial, Attorney DelSignore argued that since there was no evidence of erratic driving, that the subjective observations of the officer would not be enough to overcome the presumption of innocence and to show that alcohol impaired the client's ability to drive safely. When there is no bad driving, Attorney DelSignore likes to argue as he did in this case that safe driving shows that the individual was not impaired by alcohol. After trial, the defendant was found not guilty of OUI.

Further, during cross examination, Attorney DelSignore pointed out many signs inconsistent with the conclusion that the defendant was impaired. Further, some gaps in the memory of the officer were important to show that if the client was impaired the officer would have had a better memory of the incident.

Dedham District Court: OUI 2 nd offense not guilty after Jury Trial In this case, our client was stoped on the side of the road.

At trial, the Commonwealth was allowed to admit receipts allegedly showing what the client drank that was found in his pocket. The trial judge should not have allowed this evidence in as it was hearsay.

Attorney DelSignore argued that the testimony of the officer was not consistent with extreme intoxication as the Commonwealth was arguing by relying on the receipts. After trial, the jury found the client not guilty.
