    If you have an attorney, discuss things with him/her. If you are doubting your attorney's advice/legal strategy then consult with a different one. FYI, OUI can be proved in two ways: 1) per-se violation of the statute with a BAC of .08 or above (you did not blow and there was no blood test, so this cannot be proved), OR 2) impaired through liquor or drugs while you were driving. This may be achieved through circumstantial evidence. Good luck to you Ilir Kavaja, Esq.

    You should speak with the attorney that handled your OUI case and get some guidance. There are more facts needed in order to determine what your next step should be. If the attorney who handled your OUI is not willing to help with your license, then you should consult with and retain a different one. Good Luck, Ilir Kavaja, Esq. (617) 515-5545

    If you were not arrested, you will likely be issued a summons to appear in court. The summons will either be for a Clerk Magistrate Hearing or to arraign you. I am including a link at the bottom, which explains what a Clerk's hearing is and how people can go about it. A&B is a serious offense and you should absolutely have an attorney represent you. You can contact one through AVVO or reach out to the Mass Bar Association or the local Bar Association and ask for a referral. It sounds like...

    Don't be so quick to plead guilty or admit to sufficient facts! You may have a case worth trying in court or there may be grounds to have the case dismissed. Have an attorney evaluate your case. Most of us offer free consults. Also, there are plenty of attorneys who will work with you in terms of fees and payments. Call around and schedule free consults and talk to an attorney about your situation. Best of Luck.

    1. He should have never admitted anything; it may still be possible to suppress that admission. However, that requires legal analysis and review of all the facts. 2. He can ask the judge to appoint him a Public Defender or a Bar Advocate. If the judge tells him that he does not qualify, your boyfriend should then ask for a re-evaluation by the probation department. On his next court date he can try to go to the probation department at 8:30AM (it is in the courthouse) and ask to be re-...

    I do not believe that it will show up on your CORI since you were never criminally charged. If for any reason it does show up (and I do not know why it would) then you can have it sealed and/or expunged. Also, if the retail company doing the background search is in any way connected to Filene's Basement (parent company, company that bought it, etc) there may be internal record that may reveal it. However, chances are slim. Hope this helps and good luck. Law Office of Ilir Kavaja 30...

    If the docket shows the case to be dismissed, then you were not convicted.

    In my experience, both as a former prosecutor and as a defense attorney, it is my opinion that it is unlikely that you face jail time. However, I would have to first read the police report and speak to anyone (including you) in person to give a better and informed assessment of the case. All the options you mention are within reach. Also, consider the possibility that an experienced attorney may be able to fight the charge and get a dismissal or a not guilty verdict! My suggestion is...

    Yes he should absolutely hire an attorney, and yes this may potentially impact his career in law enforcement. He will likely be charged with Assault and Battery, as well as a related charge with the fare evasion. He needs representation ASAP. At times, it is possible to dispose of the case before he gets charged. Speak with a Criminal Defense Attorney; most will offer a free consultation. Hope this helps, and best of luck.
