In OUI cases, police officers will often fail to follow the proper procedure in administering the test which undermines the scientific reliability of the results. A hearing is scheduled in court which address whether the Commonwealth can establish the legal requirements to admit a breath test result. If this motion is denied other defenses to a breath test case include:
- Disconnection between the results and officer’s observations
- Showing that a Medical condition may have made the results inaccurate in your case.
- Arguing to the jury that the officer did not follow the correct procedures, undermining the reliability of the results.
Those charged with first offense OUI in Mendon will very often be offered a plea bargain of a continued without a finding or better known as a CWOF. Many clients will ask if this is a good deal. While a CWOF technically not a guilty verdict, it still has severe consequences. There will be an automatic suspension of license, fines and mandatory alcohol classes. Along with this, even though it is technically not a conviction, if someone with a CWOF is arrested again for drunk driving, it will still be considered a second offense OUI which carries harsher penalties.
