Massachusetts DUI Laws

In the state of Massachusetts, it is illegal to drive or operate a motor vehicle if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. According to state DUI law, a person is considered too impaired to drive if his or her blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is .08% or higher. If a driver is under the age of 21, he or she is prohibited from driving if his or her BAC is higher than .02%. Any driver in Boston or throughout the state of Massachusetts found driving with a BAC at or above the legal limit will be arrested and booked on DUI charges. At this time, it’s best to contact a seasoned Boston DUI lawyer who has the experience and skill to defend you in court. Judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement authorities have no tolerance for people who drive under the influence, and always prosecute those people harshly in court.

  • Engineer Charged With OUI Found Not Guilty After Trial

    On February 18, 2023 just before midnight police were called for an accident in a suburb north of Boston. The responding officers saw a car with significant front end damage sitting on a lawn in a densely populated neighborhood. The vehicle had also struck the house and damaged a utility box. Our client was outside of the car. An officer contacted him to investigate the incident. The officer observed our client unsteady on his feet with a strong odor of alcohol coming from his body. His speech was slurred and his responses to questioning were delayed. Several field sobriety tests were administered, the horizontal gaze nystagmus HGN, walk and turn and one legged stand. The officer reported that our client failed each test. He also admitted to drinking 4 beers. As a result, our client was arrested and charged with OUI in violation of G.L. c. 90 section 24. Through booking videos we were able to demonstrate that the police officer lied. Our client was very responsive, very steady on his feet and speaking without slurring his words. We played this for the jury and our client was found not guilty.

  • OUI Dismissed on Day of Trial

    This case result is a follow up to last week's successful motion to suppress the search and seizure on an OUI, G.L. c. 90 section 24 case. Recognizing that the district attorney would unlikely be successful in continuing to prosecute this case he alerted the judge to the fact that he was not ready for trial. As such, the case was dismissed.

  • Charges of OUI Against Graduate School Professor to be Dismissed After Completion of CWOF

    The defendant is a professor teaching graduate students in a major top rated university. The other night he was clocked at over 100 miles per hour not long after dark. He was pulled over by state police officer. The report indicated that the man had slurred speech, an inability to process simple commands and a strong odor of alcohol coming from his breath and car. The officers administered field sobriety tests; specifically the walk and turn test, the one legged stand test and a distorted version of the alphabet test. He failed the first two and ironically passed the alphabet test which required him to say the alphabet backwards starting with the letter T until he got to E. Taking the field sobriety tests was his first mistake. Subsequently, he agreed to a breathalyzer test. He blew a .17, more than twice the legal limit. He was charged with OUI in violation of G.L. c. 90 section 24. Needing his driver's license immediately and recognizing the difficulty in winning this case, the man opted for a quick resolution wherein he can promptly resume his operating privileges. He was given a CWOF under the 24D program. He gets a hardship license later this week and full operating privileges in 45 days.
