Since 1985, we have been fighting in local and state courts to keep DUI charges off your driving record, to keep you out of prison, and to minimize fines.

Tiverton, RI attorney Richard Humphrey at the law firm of Law Offices of Richard Humphrey has obtained a positive outcome on behalf of Mr Richard DiPrete in a Refusal Defense case [A.A. Number 2010-0173, (T09-0072), (09-001-1512175)].

Richard Humphrey represented Mr Richard DiPrete in an appeal that eventually overturned the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal appeals Panel Decision. In this case, Mr. Richard DiPrete urged that the Appeals Panel of the Rhode Island Traffic Tribunal erred when it affirmed a trial magistrate’s decision finding Mr. DiPrete guilty of refusal to submit to chemical test, a civil violation. The state failed to satisfy the burden imposed upon it by the Fourth Amendment and secondarily he alleged that the trial magistrate exceeded proper bounds when he questioned the trooper (state’s sole witness).

The decision, reached after two years of appellate work, vindicated Mr Richard DiPrete.
Attorney Richard Humphrey stated, “We are delighted to have been able to help our client with this case.”
