Concord District Court: 1st OUI Offense NOT GUILTY

After being arrested by the Concord Police department after allegedly failing field sobriety tests and signs of impairment (slurred speech and bloodshot/glassy eyes), our client was charged with their first OUI offense. And so, we went to trial. The first trial was heard by a jury to which the case was hung, meaning the jury cannot reach a unanimous verdict and will likely have to retry the case. This is a rare occurrence and has only happened 4 times in Attorney DelSignore’s career. After a 6 hour deliberation concerning a witness testimony and the booking video, Attorney DelSignore was able to have our client released without any charges.

Court Process

After being arrested and charged with an OUI for driving with under the influence, you will need to appear at your arraignment.

This meeting will include you (your lawyer if you have one available) and those pressing charges against you

  • You will be formally notified of the exact charges against you
  • Try to obtain the police report (if you do not have a lawyer present) so you can hand this over to your lawyer at a later date. This police report could be critical to the outcome of your case

After your arraignment hearing, you will attend a pretrial hearing; it is important to have a lawyer experienced in OUI defense as there is a vast difference in how lawyers may handle the same case. When you hire DelSignore Law, you will have the most aggressive defense and a lawyer on your side who understands scientific arguments challenge the Commonwealth’s evidence. After the pretrial the next step is to decide, whether to file a motion to limit the Commonwealth’s evidence or take the case straight to trial. There is always the ability to resolve the case at any point in the process. But here we are discussing the process if you plan on fighting the case.

Lastly you will face trial. You have the option to choose who hears your case: a jury or a judge. Attorney DelSignore will guide you through what is the best way to have your case heard based on his experience in Concord District Court and the judge who will hear your case.

Defenses to OUI’s in Massachusetts
  1. Observation of the Police Officer,
    1. If the officer’s testimony during your motion hearing does not align with his report of the incident, this should be a point of attack for your defense.
  2. Basis of the original stop
    1. Swerving, driving below the speed limit or above, and turning too wide are not indications of impairment but are used by officers to justify a stop.
  3. Reliability of Field Sobriety Tests
    1. It is important to note that The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration have conducted studies that demonstrated the minimal reliability of routine field sobriety tests.
  4. Breathalyzers
    1. Breathalyzers are machine that estimate your BAC based on breath samples, not blood samples. They had been proven to have a margin of error which can be crucial if you failed the breathalyzer by a few points.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
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 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
