What are the laws in massachusetts requiring police police officers to give sobriety tests?
My sister was crossing the street last year year with two of her friends when two of them were hit by a girl coming home from a bar (she told police). She was severely injured, spent the last 15 months in the hospital/rehab and actually passed away earlier this week. The police never gave a breathalyzer, field sobriety test, nothing. She told them she was at a bar. Isn't there some law that would mandate a blood test if there is such traumatic injury? So many people drive under the influence of drugs and alcohol, I don't know why the cops didn't do any testing whatsoever.

Massachusetts CWOF Dismissed OUI / Entry into Canada
OUI case is a CWOF (Continuation without a finding) in Massachusetts. Case will be dismissed pending completion of probation June 2015. Plan on trip to Vancouver for a Cruise in August 2016. I have heard mixed opinions on this site, and elsewhere regarding crossing the Canadian Border under these circumstances. 1) Since the case will have been dismissed by then, a letter from a lawyer or paperwork from the court stating that the case is dismissed will suffice. 2) Will need a Temporary Resident Permit. 3) Will need a full Canadian Criminal Rehabilitation. 4) None of these options above will work. Looking for advice on next steps. And if the suggestion is to talk to a Canadian Immigration Lawyer, then a referral to a good Canadian Immigration Lawyer. Thank You!
AVVO doesn't let us solicit or refer, you need to secure an attorney on your own. As to your issue, CWOFS are...
How long does the state have to prosecute you before they have to drop charges
I have a OUI #2 and its been 4 years and I have been out on $2500 bail showing up for court every date on time then a few weeks ago I was arrested on a warrant cause apparently I was supposed to goto court. last time I went they said the victim/witness was gonna be outa the country for 9 months and we might have a earlier date to discus a plea which I never could get ahold of my lawyer to find out when. its dragging on and every time I show up ether we are not ready or the D.A. isn't ready. When I say we I mean my lawyer who is paid for by the state. So now that I just spent a week in jail again cause of "there" lawyer I finally got a new one who seems pretty good if she sticks around. How many times can this happen?
If you have a new lawyer, I think you are best advised to speak to her. I appreciate that you are trying to tell us...
If I got an oui drugs and my license gets suspended before I go to trial, can my fiancé still drive the car registered to me?

Can I take an online 24D class for Mass, or take it in CT?
First offense, no priors. Clean driving record. Have to move for a job in a week & travel back to Mass will be very difficult if not impossible. Working 7 days/wk, & cost prohibitive. I know it's best if can take it in MA, but really can't.
