Facing an OUI charge in Fitchburg, Massachusetts can be very shocking experience in terms of learning what will happen in court and understanding the court process. Many charged with drunk driving have little familiarity with the court system.

Fitchburg is the third largest city in Worcester County with a population over 40,000 people. With its wonderful atmosphere in the fall, it is quite an attraction during those times especially for apple picking. Given the high volume of traffic and a university inside the city, this is a potential hot spot for OUI charges.

Police will often rely on the field sobriety test to try and prove the suspect is guilty of drunk driving if a breathalyzer test becomes inadmissible. Clients charged with an OUI in Fitchburg will then ask if there will be any defenses to a police officer claiming the suspect performed poorly on the field sobriety test. As an experienced Fitchburg OUI attorney, Michael DelSignore knows there are often potential defenses to these tests.

A field sobriety test is completely subjective to the police officer’s opinion and can often be unreliable. If the police officer gives wrong instructions, it will often make a difficult test more difficult and lead to bad results. Furthermore, a police officer may score wrong and attempt to show you were intoxicated when you truly were not. Attorney DelSignore will review the police report and question witnesses to find the truth about the events.

Second Offense OUI

For those charged with a second OUI offense, this becomes even more imperative. Fitchburg OUI attorney Michael DelSignore has defended many clients charged with a second offense OUI.

Although a second offense will still be a misdemeanor, it will carry harsher penalties including larger fines, longer probation periods and a longer license suspension. Furthermore, a second offense will mean possible jail time. Attorney DelSignore has had great success in defending second time offenders by showing the stop was not legal, faulty breathalyzer testing and other OUI defenses.
