NEW: DUI Charges Dropped Against Bishop McManus
Tuesday, June 04, 2013
"My client had admitted violation of refusing to take a chemical breath test last month, and today was the pretrial proceedings for the DUI and leaving the scene of the accident charges," McManus' lawyer William Murphy told GoLocal. "As he didn't have prior record, the dismissal of the DUI charge is standard for first time offenders."
The charges were dropped this morning when McManus appeared before a Traffic Tribunal in Wakefield. McManus had plead not guilty in Washington County District Court on May 7 to driving under the influence and leaving the scene of an accident, following reports McManus had struck a driver on May 4.
McManus lost his driver's license for six months and was ordered to pay $900 in fines and court costs.
