Correct me if I am wrong, but the person charged with OUI was the teacher not the driver. In order for someone to be convicted of drunk driving in Massachusetts the person must 1) Be driving 2) on a public way 3) under the influence. Here, I cannot see how the man charged could be found guilty of driving when he is in the passenger seat. Guilty on being the worst drivers ed teacher. Not Guilty on OUI DWI/ DUI.
Massachusetts takes drunk driving very seriously. The penalties for a first offense are severe and expensive. If you know someone who has been charged with an OUI or DWI/DUI contact Attorney Patrick Donovan today.
