What Are the Elements of a DUI Case in Massachusetts?

The crime of DUI/OUI is defined in Mass. General Laws c.90 § 24 as operating a motor vehicle on a public road while under the influence of intoxicating liquor and/or drugs. During an OUI criminal case in Massachusetts, the prosecution must prove certain elements as true beyond a reasonable doubt to secure a conviction against the defendant.

These elements generally include:

  • Operation or actual physical control of a motor vehicle;
  • While under the influence of alcohol, drugs or a combination of both;
  • With proof of impairment, such as a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or higher;
  • And a lawful arrest based on probable cause.

The prosecution must have enough admissible evidence to establish the required elements of an OUI against you. Your attorney can work to block certain evidence from the court due to issues such as constitutional rights violations or a broken chain of evidence to poke holes in the prosecutor’s case.
