After being taken into custody for an OUI, you will need to appear before a judge for your arraignment hearing. If you were arrested in Sharon, Massachusetts, you will need to appear for this hearing at the Stoughton District Court. After meeting with your lawyer you will then need to decide if your case is most winnable being heard by a judge or a jury.

After your arraignment, you will then be ordered to a pretrial hearing and a motion hearing before appearing in court for trial.PRETRIAL HEARING
You and your defense team will share all documents obtained for your case (for example, your medical records) with the prosecution, and vice versa. This is done so all documents can be read over and full arguments can be prepared before the motion hearing and trial. It’s possible to have more than one of these meetings, dependent on how quickly government documents can be obtained.MOTION HEARING
