If you are arrested on suspicion of OUI in Massachusetts, and you elect to take a breathalyzer test, the Commonwealth may proceed on two theories to prove guilt. For instance, the government must show:
- Operation of a Motor Vehicle;
- On a Way; and
- While the Operator is either Under the Influence of Alcohol, or with a Breathalyzer Test Reading of .08 or above at the Time of Operation.
As a result, if you are facing an OUI allegation where the Commonwealth is likely to proceed under both theories, you need an OUI Lawyer who has handled these cases on both sides. Contact Attorney Shane W. Surrette at (774) 364-4605 or at [email protected] today.
