Will Entering Alcohol Treatment Mean I am Guilty of an OUI in Massachusetts

I am often asked will it be used against me if I enter into an alcohol treatment program. The answer is 100% that it will have no negative impact and will have a positive impact. You should get whatever treatment you think is necessary relating to your OUI charge or a general alcohol problem you have in your life.

Here is the reasons why treatment will benefit you in court.

  1. Judges see people with alcohol issues everyday; they are very good at making observations to determine if someone has a current problem with alcohol. Often, the difference between a guilty and a not guilty in an OUI will come down to a few facts, the judge is more likely to look at the evidence in your favor if the judge does not believe you have long term issues with alcohol.
  2. Any treatment you do can be considered in sentencing if you are convicted.
  3. If you are suspend by the Registry of Motor Vehicles for Immediate Threat, the RMV will require alcohol and or drug treatment, depending on the reason for the suspension.
  4. An OUI is not the end of your life. A first offense is not life changing for most people. Whether you are found guilty or not guilty you still have to go back to work and support your family. Regardless of the outcome of the case, you should do whatever you need to make sure that your family has the best version of you, healthy, working and supporting your family.

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
