OUI Disposition

August 2019

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.

Practice area(s): DUI / DWI

Your Time May Be Limited!

If you are a defendant in a civil suit, you have a specific period of time in which to file an answer. Failure to do so can result in a default judgment being issued against you. Failure to timely submit responses to discovery requests can also negatively affect your case. Those named as defendants in criminal cases via clerk magistrate or “show cause” hearings must appear, or the complaint will issue against them. Those seeking to appeal a negative action, such as a firearms license denial or revocation, denial of a permit, or losing a case at trial, all have specific time periods in which to act. Do not lose your rights by inertia or delay.

Act Now!

The law is an area in which inertia can have very negative consequences: The loss of rights and remedies. It is unlikely that your problem will just “go away” - act now to protect yourself and preserve your options.
