Commonwealth v. L.B. — Mr. B, an offensive lineman for the Boston Bruins at the time of his arrest, was charged with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol in Charlestown District Court. After a trial, during which the judge viewed the "crime" scene, which is never done in a jury-waived case, Mr. B was acquitted of all charges.

Commonwealth v. B.R. (0713 CR 002590) — Mr. R was charged with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol as a second offender in Lynn District Court where I was successfully able to have the case dismissed with a Pre-Trial Motion.
