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.

APRIL 2016 FITCHBURG CASE NOT GUILTYThe client was alleged to have crossed the double yellow line, had slurred speech and failed field sobriety tests that were administered.

A careless decision on my part left me facing charges which would have severely hampered my ability to stay employed and support myself. But attorney DelSignore's skillful analysis and challenging of the evidence against me resulted in a conviction on a lesser charge. Now I'll be able to go on with my life, having learned a lesson I'll never forget. Thank you, Michael. Scott

Mike stuck with my case for 3.5 years and always kept me informed regarding the status. Ultimately, because of his due diligence, we ended up with an OUI not guilty verdict. This case could have gone many ways but his thorough review of the case and exceptional preparedness for trial ultimately drove a positive outcome. Thank you Mike! David

I cannot express the gratitude towards both Michael and Julie for their amazing work and help. It was a very stressful event and they certainly put me at as much ease as possible. From start to finish it took 14 months and all the way through they were both very engaged with me. Today was worth the wait, Michael was great in court and I was rightfully found not guilty. I would recommend Michael and Julie over and over again. Claire
