Malden: Ignition Interlock Violation: Dismissed
Summary of Facts: Our client was required to use an Ignition Interlock device, as the result of a previous OUI. Our client was pulled over for a traffic violation, and the officer discovered that our client was driving without the device. Our client was arrested and charged with the serious criminal offense of driving without the interlock device, as well unlicensed operation and a civil marked lanes violation.
Action: Our firm was hired to represent to defend our client against these charges. Attorney Christopher Coughlin discussed the charges in depth with the prosecutor, and was able to show that the documentation did not adequately show the interlock requirement. Thus, the charge was dismissed without trial. The unlicensed operation charge was continued without a finding, and our client was held not responsible for the marked lanes violation.
Result: Our client’s serious charge was dismissed. The other charges against our client were also resolved favorably, thus saving our clients criminal record, and driving record from unnecessary blemishes.
