Client was arraigned in Gloucester district Court and charged with Operating Under the Influence after the Gloucester Police noticed him sleeping in his parked vehicle.
Client had left a dinner party with friends and decided to sleep it off before traveling home to the city. After several passes through the neighborhood, officers decided to inquire about the status of the occupant. Officers let themselves into the vehicle and began their OUI investigation. It didn’t take the officers long to decide that the gentleman sleeping in the driver’s seat was intoxicated and he was promptly taken into custody.
Attorney Martin gathered all relevant and exculpatory discovery in preparation for a jury trial. Because of this diligent pretrial preparation, after consulting with Attorney Martin as well as the Gloucester Police Department, the District Attorney’s Office, noticing weaknesses in their case, decided to dismiss all charges against client.
