Commonwealth v. S.B. – OUI

4/16/14
– Newton District Court
– Newton Police
– Client was found involved in a minor motor vehicle accident near a local school just after midnight. Newton Police arrived and determined client was under the influence and had client submit to several field sobriety tests. At trial, Attorney Seed was able to show, through cross-examination of the officer, that his client was able to perform many tasks that would tend to show client was not impaired. At the close of the commonwealth’s case, Attorney Seed moved for a Directed Verdict of Not Guilty. The judge heard brief arguments from both sides and immediately allowed the motion, finding client Not Guilty of OUI.
