An active arrest warrant existed for a man for almost three years in Wareham District Court for Operating Under the Influence (OUI) of Drugs, 2nd Offense; Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle; Operating a Motor Vehicle with License Suspended; and, Marked Lanes Violation. Living in Rhode Island, the man finally decided to surrender himself to the Court and in preparation for doing so, retained the Law Office of John L. Calcagni III, Inc. The man had an extensive negative driving history in both Rhode Island and Massachusetts. He had been charged four times with operating under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs within the past several years and had no hope of getting his license reinstated.
Following ongoing negotiations with the Plymouth County District Attorney’s Office, Attorney Calcagni and his team successfully secured its agreement to dismiss three out of the four charges, including OUI in exchange for the man’s guilty plea to negligent operation of a motor vehicle and a sentence of six months at the House of Corrections, suspended for 1 year with probation, with conditions. Two months into his probation, the man violated his conditions. The man was ordered to appear before the Court for an initial probation violation hearing. Attorney Calcagni and his team successfully secured the Probation Department’s agreement to not seek detention at this initial hearing. Prior to the final hearing, Attorney Calcagni and his team had ongoing discussions with the Probation Department with the added condition that he undergo bi-weekly drug screens at the courthouse, as opposed to a private health care provider. The man appeared for his final probation violation hearing, admitted violation, and was placed back on probation with no additional punishment.
Probation Violation – Continued on Same Terms and Conditions.
