  • Possession Class A (6th Offense)

    Practice Area:
    Criminal Defense
    Date:
    Jan 01, 2005
    Outcome:
    Charges Dismissed
    Description:
    Westboro District Court. The Defendant, a 54 year old gentleman, was taken out of his vehicle by police and paramedics who arrived on scene to find the Defendant’s vehicle parked horizontally across the road pointing into the woods after an apparent accident. Found in plain view in the vehicle were 10 full bags of what appeared to be heroin, numerous empty heroin bags, 10 hypodermic needles and a soda can ripped in half with burn marks on the bottom, all of which was taken into evidence. The Defendant was taken to UMASS and police applied for complaints for OUI Drugs and Possession Class A, Subsequent Offense. Despite five (5) previous OUI arrests, three (3) of which resulted in convictions and six (6) previous convictions for Possession Class A and/or Possession Class A, Subsequent Offense, several of which resulted in 1 year jail terms, Attorney Casale was able to have the charges issued as straight OUI Drugs and Possession Class A, dropping the “subsequent offense” designations. In the District Court, despite the defendant’s seven (7) page CORI (Criminal Offender Record Information) Attorney Casale was able to get all charges dismissed upon a showing that Defendant had entered and completed detoxification and aftercare, was now living in sober housing and had produced several clean drug screens. Instead of serving time in jail and losing his license for 10 years or more, he is now clean and sober with a valid Massachusetts license with all charges Dismissed!

All physical evidence was suppressed and the charges against the Defendant were dismissed.
  • DUI with Serious Bodily Injury

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:
    Jul 12, 2011
    Outcome:
    Not Guilty - Jury Verdict
    Description:
    Framingham District Court. Police and emergency medical teams transported two people to the hospital from this two-car collision in Framingham. Our defendant was charged with running a stop sign and Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol. He allegedly broadsided another vehicle while intoxicated causing serious bodily injury to the passenger of the other vehicle. The passengers of both vehicles were brought to the hospital for treatment. Our client was arrested at the scene and charged with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol. Later the charge was amended to the much more serious offense of Operating Under the Influence Causing Serious Bodily Injury. Attorney Casale was able to block highly damaging testimonial evidence from one passenger and draw suspicion to the allegations of serious bodily injury through intense cross examination of the other passenger. Although the police destroyed the booking video, which was the one piece of evidence that was favorable to the defendant, Attorney Casale was able to use this to our client's advantage as evidence of a shoddy investigation by the police. This coupled with the suspicious motives of the government's star witness, drawn out under cross examination, provided sufficient reasonable doubt for the jury of six to find our client Not Guilty and acquit him after a full day of trial, but a mere 20 minutes of deliberation.

    Practice Area:
    DUI & DWI
    Date:

    Not Guilty - License Reinstated by Judicial Order
    Description:
    Westboro District Court. In this case the 25 year old male was stopped by local police on Route 9 for speeding.

Our client was arrested and charged with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol (OUI) and Speeding. At trial, Attorney Casale obtained a verdict of Not Guilty and upon Attorney Casale's motion, the judge ordered our client's license to be reinstated, despite his refusal to take the Breath Test.
