First Offense Dismissed After Motion


Police claimed that my client was driving while under the influence of intoxicating liquor. My client lost her license for 30 days after submitting to a breath test.

Maximum Penalty:

Imprisonment for not more that 2 ½ years, or not less than $500, or both, plus $50 Victims of Drunk Driving Assessment, $250 Head Injury Assessment, and license revoked for 1 year.


The Client had a tremendous result by having this first offense case dismissed. After filing a motion to dismiss due to lost or destroyed evidence, the Commonwealth offered to dismiss the OUI charge. My client accepted, and the Court adopted the dismissal.
