Motion Pursuant to the Brave Act Allowed (M.G.L. c. 276A s. 10) - Case Dismissed
Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol, Carrying a Firearm While Intoxicated; Clinton District Court; Commonwealth v. M.T.; November 24, 2023
Bolton Police Officers were dispatched to investigate a report of a past motor vehicle crash. When the investigating officers arrived on scene, they observed the Defendant inside of a vehicle attempting to drive away after going off the roadway, into a garden, and up against the side of a residence. Once the officers had the vehicle stopped, they observed a strong odor about the Defendant's person and the Defendant presented as unsteady on his feet. The Defendant was thereafter slurring his words and was unable to do Field Sobriety Tests. The Defendant was arrested for the charged offenses and the police thereafter located a firearm inside of the vehicle.
Attorney Ciraulo filed on behalf of the Defendant a Motion to Dismiss Pursuant to the Brave Act and successfully argued that the case should be Dismissed as the Defendant was / is a qualified Veteran of the United States Military and lack of previous record justifies Dismissal.
