Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle: Continued Without a Finding
Attleboro Police responded to a report of single vehicle crash. Upon arrival, they discovered an SUV parked along the grassy infield of the roadway that had struck and destroyed a sign. Police encountered the operator, who displayed signs of intoxication such as glassy eyes, slurred speedy, and the odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from his breath.
When questioned by police, the operator admitted to consuming alcohol earlier in the evening and made statements indicating to police that the man was confused as to his whereabouts and direction of travel. Police administered to the man a series of field sobriety tests, which he failed. The man also participated in a breath test, which yielded his blood alcohol content above .20. The man retained Massachusetts Criminal Defense Lawyer, John L. Calcagni III, to defend him in this matter.
At arraignment, based on the weight of incriminating evidence, Attorney Calcagni negotiated a disposition that called for the man’s participation in a first-time offender program. The man’s case shall be continued without a finding for 12 months. Providing he complies with all requirements during this time, to include a short license suspension, attendance of classes and payments of fees and assessments, the matter will be dismissed at the end of the CWOF period and become eligible to be sealed from public record.
