Client was stopped on his motorcycle at approximately 9:00 pm after being observed failing to stop at stop sign. Police officer testified to the odor of alcohol, slurred speech and failure on standard field sobriety tests. Breathalyzer taken at the station produced a reading of .15 which is above the .08 limit. Attorney Murray obtained the booking video taken at the police station in which the client was polite and cooperative through out. Contrast was drawn between the client’s breathalyzer results and his behavior in the video creating reasonable doubt.
The case was presented to a jury in the Worcester District Court. After deliberating for approximately 1 hour, the jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty.
