Natick OUI Lawyer
What are the elements of an OUI offense that the Commonwealth must prove in court to obtain a conviction?
When you are arrested for OUI in Natick, the police must prove three elements beyond a reasonable doubt:
- That you operated a Motor Vehicle;
- On a Public Way;
- That you were under the influence of alcohol at the time of operation.
Some who call after a DUI arrest want a quick resolution. In Massachusetts, the only quick resolution is accepting a plea and admitting to the charge. Fighting a case requires that it go through the court process. Once you separate the facts about dealing with an OUI from common misunderstandings about the law you will have the ability to make an informed decision regarding your case.
What Evidence should you expect from the Natick Police?

The police department has a video of the booking process, that does not include sound. The video will show how you stand and move about during the booking process and will assist with a motion to exclude the breath test on procedural grounds. This video will typically be provided at a pretrial conference so you should not expect to receive it at the arraignment.Where are Natick OUI Arrests Heard?
