Malden District Court
SECOND OFFENSE OUI- Liquor or .08% Chapter 90 Section 24(1) (a) (1)
Speeding, Chapter 90, Section 17A
Client was a hard-working, newly married construction professional who was charged with a 2nd Offense OUI. According to Police, he was speeding and pulled over. The police drafted a report with all the normal indicators of intoxication. Also, client agreed to a breath test which was twice the legal limit. The client wanted a deal and wanted to move on with his life which included a hardship license to drive. At a plea hearing, the Commonwealth asked the judge to impose a guilty conviction with a suspended jail sentence and have him attend a government two-week IMPATIENTprogram. Attorney Barabino argued for an alternative disposition where client would be 1) placed on probation with an expectation that the case be dismissed after a year with normal conditions and cost of a 1st Offense OUI charge, a 45-day loss of license not one year, and NO Impatient program. The judge agreed with Attorney Barabino.
RESULT: 2nd OFFENSE OUI, 1st OFFENSE RESULT, Speeding Ticket, NOT RESPONSIBLE.
