For those charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated by alcohol, all sorts of challenges may lie ahead. Each year, many people are taken into custody over these allegations in Boston, and in other cities across Massachusetts.

As a result, you should be sure to compare any options that are on the table closely and make sure that you have identified the path forward which is most sensible.
