Massachusetts DUI / OUI

Drunk Driving Defense in Boston

There are many things to do in Massachusetts, and it is not uncommon for young people, professionals, or families to go out to popular bars, restaurants, or lounges to enjoy the company of others. When people have a few drinks but do not plan ahead and choose to get behind the wheel, they put themselves at risk of being arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) or operating under the influence (OUI). They also put the safety of others around them at risk. While many people think they are sober enough to get behind the wheel, failure to pass a breathalyzer exam could land a person behind bars and change the rest of his or her life.

At The Criminal Defense Group, we know that mistakes happen. We know that you would have never expected yourself to be stuck in your current predicament, but rest assured that your current circumstances do not have to define your future! If you have been arrested for a DUI / OUI offense, consult the legal advice of a Boston criminal defense attorney from The Criminal Defense Group!

Breath & Chemical Testing Reliability

In order to be charged with a DUI / OUI offense, drivers must be under the influence of alcohol or some sort of controlled substance. In order to prove a level of illegal impairment, law enforcement officials will attempt to determine your blood alcohol content (BAC) level. If you are found to be driving with a BAC above the legal limit of 0.08%, you will be arrested for a DUI / OUI offense. At The Criminal Defense Group, we believe that DUI / OUI offenses are never cut and dry, and there are serious factors that can influence a DUI / OUI case greatly.

When alcohol is consumed, the alcohol takes time to metabolize within the body. As a result, alcohol can stay in the body's bloodstream for hours at a time. But because every human body metabolizes and processes chemicals at different rates, and due to external influences such as food, water, or a person's sensitivity to alcohol, it is nearly impossible to determine the exact amount of alcohol must be present in the body to impair a driver's ability to function behind the wheel of a motor vehicle.

This is extremely true in cases of controlled substances, as well. Because drugs such as prescription pills, marijuana, or even over-the-counter drugs, such as cold medicine are processed differently within each person's body, chemical tests can yield results that could render an illegal amount, yet a person could have perfect control of a vehicle. As experienced DUI / OUI defense lawyers in Boston, we understand the complex science behind these types of criminal charges and can create a solid defense for your case!
