Draeger Alcotest 9510 OUI cases

A statewide hearing was conducted to determine the scientific reliability of breath test results using the Draeger Alcotest 9510. As a result of that hearing, all breath tests administered in Massachusetts between June 2011 and April 18, 2019 have been excluded from use in criminal prosecutions. 

As a result, an opportunity may exist for you to challenge the disposition in your case if a Draeger Alcotest 9510 breathalyzer machine was used in your case for which you were convicted or admitted to sufficient facts for Operating Under the Influence of Liquor (OUI).

The court has sent notices to those affected by a Draeger 9510 Alcotest.
