What chance do I have winning an OIU case in MA when I was not intoxicated or under the influence of Rx drugs I was prescribed by a doctor? I admit I was driving over the speed limit at 3:30am (and I hadn't slept in 24 hours, so I was tired), and the officer who pulled me over demanded I take a field sobriety test (instead of giving me the option which I thought he had to do?). I failed the 30 second "toe point" and heel-to-heel walk b/c of my bad ankles (he didn't want to hear about it). I am on Adderall and Klonopin, and the last pill I took was an Adderall at apx 3:00pm that afternoon. I wasn't OUI. Additionally, I offered to take a urine, blood and breath test twice and was ignored. So they don't have that as evidence and they didn't confiscate my meds. Do I have a strong case?
The definition, charges, and penalties for driving under the influence (DUI) vary by state and depend on a number of factors.
After you are arrested for DUI, getting the charges against you dropped or reduced will require you to develop a defense.
