Hello, Just gathering research on a case.
JA: Because laws vary from state to state, could you tell me what state is this in?
Customer: Massachusetts. DUI 2nd offense- but was not drunk- just throwing up and it looks very winnable. They had to take me to the hospital twice before arraignment to try to stop the vomiting/. at that point I could no long er walk because of the electrolyte loss. Hours earlier the policer who questioned me assumed i was intoxicated. He was just doing his job. But I can;t afford this offense not handle jail time. I agreed and tried the brealalizer twice but did not have the lung capacity to blow long enough. They did not offer blood or urine- both of which I would gladly do. In massachusetts not finishing the test twice is an automatic refual and loss of licene for 6 months.
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Spoke very brliefly with my court
appointed attorney. I haven;t seen the police report
yet, but have been making notes on my experience.
JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in?
Customer: Mass. My assumption is that I need to reach out to the pre trial
probation officer Monday,. Already left one message for the att. awaiting his response on the next step..
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: Plenty. :)My medical records that show with very litte alcohol, I can seie and also the voting starts violently when the drinking stops. I was stopped on my way to the closest convenience store for cola to debubble and drink to try to stop the vomiting. Ity's also a package store- had i wanted to not be sick i would have purchased alchol which i did not. I had stopped the night before also, have you heard of a wet reckless? If he just wants to clear another case, ( which I think we can fight) then perhaps the prosecutor will be willing to sentence
and or charge bargain. I work mostly from home. I would welcome a home sentence with bracelet and only travel with certain restrictions ie; to mee the probation officer and dr appointds.
