MASSACHUSETTS STATE POLICE ANNOUNCE ROADBLOCK FOR JUNE 5, 2010

Joseph Coupal - Friday, May 28, 2010
The Massachusetts State Police have announced that a “sobriety checkpoint” will be implemented beginning Saturday, June 5, 2010 and continuing into June 6, 2010. The roadblock will take place on a secondary state highway in Worcester County. The State Police often team up with local law enforcement when operating the checkpoints, which may utilize over a dozen officers at a time as well as mobile breath testing equipment. Many of these roadblocks are part of the nationwide “Over The Limit, Under Arrest” mobilization, for which state and federal grant money is used to fund police overtime, equipment and education. Last year, the constitutionality of these checkpoints was again called into question, but the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court rejected the challenge. However, the police must strictly comply with the many requirements that the Court has outlined, and the failure to do so may result in the exclusion of all evidence obtained against a defendant. If you are arrested following a roadblock or “sobriety checkpoint,” contact an attorney who knows how to defend these cases successfully. Call Brooks & Crowley LLP at 781-251-0555.
