Client arrested after OUI stop, with additional charges of negligent operation and marked lanes violations. He blew .21% on a now-admissible breathalyzer test, given by a town approved for use of the very-recently reapproved such devices.
We disposed of the case at arraignment; a Continued W/O a Finding (CWOF) on the OUI, and the other two charges dismissed. That means no money wasted on status conferences, pre-trial conferences, compliance hearings, and no trial - which did not offer much hope, given the quality of the police reports and the evidence.
More importantly for the client, it is not a conviction, protects his security clearance, and it expedites the return of his license.
