The Three Elements of DUI/OUI
The Commonwealth, represented by the District Attorney’s Office, must prove three things to convict someone of OUI.
First: The Commonwealth must prove that the Defendant was operating a motor vehicle. This means that the defendant was in control of a motor vehicle, and that the vehicle’s power was operational.
Second: The Commonwealth must prove that the motor vehicle was operating on a public way. This means that the road or area the vehicle was located in was one where the public had the right to access.
Third: The Commonwealth must prove that the defendant’s ability to operate safely was diminished by alcohol or drugs. This can be done through scientific tests, such as a breathalyzer or blood test, or through the observations of the police.
