CHARGE: Operating a Motor Vehicle with License Suspended due to OUI Conviction
Result: Motion to Dismiss Allowed; Mandatory jail sentence avoided; Trial
The Commonwealth alleged that my client was operating his vehicle while his license was suspended for a previous OUI conviction. If we lost, my client was facing a mandatory 60 day jail sentence. Prior to trial, I was able to locate a technicality in the law that allowed me to argue for a dismissal of the charges. At trial, I was able to get all charges dismissed. As a result, he avoided a further loss of his license and did not serve a single day in jail!
