Worcester: OUI: Not Guilty
Summary of Facts: Our client was stopped for a minor traffic violation when driving home from a wedding. The officer questioned him and observed signs that he believed indicated impairment from alcohol, including that our client told the officer that he had urinated in his pants. Our client submitted to field sobriety tests, which the officer alleged he failed. Our client was arrested, given a breathalyzer test, and charged with OUI – 1st offense.
Action: Our client hired Coughlin Law Group to defend him against the OUI charge. Attorney Christopher Coughlin worked diligently with our client and his family to obtain medical records and psychological evaluations of our client. These records ultimately indicated some of the mental impairments that our client suffered from that explained the performance on the field sobriety tests. Our client, on the advice of Attorney Coughlin, decided to take the case to trial in front of a judge. At trial, the judge listened to testimony from the arresting officer, and reviewed our client’s medical records. Based on the submitted evidence, and Attorney Coughlin’s trial skills, our client was found not guilty of OUI.
Result: Our client was found not guilty of OUI. Our client was not required to make any admissions, was not convicted, and was spared any collateral consequences.
