Charge: OUI alcohol.
Result: not guilty; bench trial (licensed saved).

The Commonwealth alleged that my client was impaired by alcohol when she drove her vehicle into a stone wall, located in front of a house. They used the fact that she was visibly upset and shook up from the accident to try and convince the jury that she was impaired. The arresting officer claimed that she failed so-called field sobriety tests, had glassy eyes, and slurred her speech. Despite these claims, I was able to secure her a verdict of not guilty!
