MOTION TO SUPPRESS STOP OF MOTOR VEHICLE ALLOWED OUI DISMISSED
Leominster District Court 8/21/13
Client is pulled over at 11:45 p.m. in Leominster during a State Police drunk driving roadblock. Trooper observes strong odor of alcoholic beverage, glassy, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. Client admits to having two drinks. Client fails alphabet, HGN, one leg stand and walk and turn tests. Client blows .158 on the portable breath test. We argue roadblock was illegal as it was not conducted according to guidelines established by the SJC and Appeals courts. Judge orders all information obtained as a result of the stop inadmissible.
