    There are a number of additional questions I would have for you to be able to adequately advise you based on the above. That said: 1) If the store recovered the perfume, there is essentially no restitution owed. However, per the MA statutes, Sephore is allowed to collect up to $500. They will likely be sending you letters asking you for money, and a collection agency will get involved. If you have an attorney at the time you receive the letters, do not respond! Simply forward the...

    It is very likely that the open OUI will be charged as your 3rd, assuming that the DA has a complete criminal record. If you go to arraignment and the Complaint shows this as an OUI 2nd, I advise you to discuss with an attorney immediately; resolving the case will be easier sooner, rather than later.

    It appears you have a strong case. I suggest reading the back of the citation and writing a letter requesting an appeal. As the attorney above stated, bring in both your old and new registration when you appear in court, and do not discuss your "peeves" with the police department. Explain to the judge/magistrate that you registered your car that day, prior to knowing that a citation had even issued.

    You should contact the New England Innocence Project (NEIP) immediately. They accept cases monthly and have a high record for success for wrongful convictions. Best of Luck.

    The police must have reasonable articulable suspicion that a crime was committed, is being committed, or is about to be committed to justify a stop. The critical question is what did they recieve for information and who reported that information, known or unknown caller. I was in the Newburyport District today on a Motion to Suppress, and I've had almost the exact fact situation on a DUI stop based on a reported "incident" between a waiter and a customer at a restaurant. That was in the...

  6. Can I mitigate my sentence?

    It is possible to get the sentence reduced, however you would have to appear at the hearing with a reason for the judge to do so (ie. you've been volunteering, you have a job, etc.). If you just appear at the hearing and say that you want it reduced "just because," it's unlikely the judge will grant your request.

    It sounds like your MA probation is probably complete, however the RMV has administratively required the interlock device for two years. The bigger question for you is whether you are now a permanent resident in the State of Florida, and if so, do you have a FL driver's license? Once you obtain a FL license, the DMV in Florida will advise you whether you must keep the interlock device on your vehicle.
