COURT PROCESS

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. This is not a decision to take lightly and should be consulted with an experienced OUI lawyer. If you chose a jury trial, your case will be heard in the Dedham District Court.

Stoughton District Court

Stoughton District Court is located at 1288 Central St, Stoughton, MA 02072

Dedham Distric Court

Dedham Distric Court is located at 631 High St, Dedham, MA 02026


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

At this hearing, the police officer who arrested you will testify, under oath, against you. It is critical to your case that you have an experienced lawyer who understands the police training for conducting field sobriety tests. If the officer arrested you based mostly on failed field sobriety tests, there is often room for error in the way the officer administered the tests that can be exploited during this hearing.

TRIAL

You will appear before a judge or a jury of six to be tried for the charges against you. It is not mandatory that you speak at your trial.

COMMON WAYS TO HELP YOUR DEFENSE WHEN ARRESTED IN SHARON, MASSACHUSETTS WHAT WAS THE BASIS FOR THE STOP?

Most arrests made in Sharon occur on Sharon Central Street because it is long, curvy and busy. On roads like this it is not uncommon for a motorist to momentarily cross the centerline and be pulled over by an officer suspecting impariment.

DID YOU FAIL FIELD SOBRIETY TESTS?

Factors that can negatively affect a civilian’s ability to perform on field sobriety tests: road conditions, traffic flow, apparel, anxiety, pre-existing medical conditions.

If there is video of your arrest by either the cruiser camera or an officer’s body cam, it may be possible for an experienced OUI lawyer to unveil flaws in the way the test was administered to you that caused you to fail. Police training is required for an officer to administer a field sobriety test because the test needs to be standard in order to determine impairment of a civilian. The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration conducted studies that proved field sobriety tests have minimal reliability.

DID YOU FAIL OR REFUSE A BREATH TEST?

Breathalyzers have a significant margin of error and need to be periodically tested in order to prove reliability.

Michael was very professional and explained the process clearly and told us to be patient. After one year the charges got dismissed in the trial. Excellent knowledge of the court systems in the area of Boston. Would highly recommend him Ashwani
★★★★★
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 Michael for his 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 over and over again. Claire
