September 25, 2019 Jury Trial: Wrentham District Court

Charges: 1) OUI - Liquor

Summary: At approximately 1:45AM, Plainville Police responded to a 911 call for an erratic operator who was being followed by the civilian caller. The police responded to the scene and observed the operator of the suspect vehicle turning onto Rte. 152 near the Plainville / North Attleboro town line without its headlights on. At trial, the civilian testified that Attorney Riccio's client was tailgating him, then passed three cars and ran a red light at a four-way intersection. The officer testified that he could smell alcohol coming from the Defendant's vehicle as soon as he stepped out of his cruiser. The officer further testified that the Defendant admitted to having three drinks, was unsteady on his feet, and failed the Field Sobriety Tests. Attorney Riccio's client blew a .21% on the breathalyzer which was excluded from evidence at trial. After only 20 minutes of deliberations, the jury returned a verdict of Not Guilty.
