Holdings:

The Massachusetts Court made the following holding:

  • The standard which the court applies in reviewing the propriety of the denial of a motion for a required finding of not guilty is whether the evidence, read in a light most favorable to the commonwealth, was sufficient to satisfy a rational trier of fact of each element of the crime beyond a reasonable doubt. The court will consider the evidence at the close of the commonwealth's case and at the close of all the evidence to determine whether the motion should have been granted.
  • Mass. Gen. Laws ch. 263, § 5A provides in part that a person held in custody at a police station, charged with operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor, shall have the right, at his request and at his expense, to be examined immediately by a physician selected by him. The police official in charge of such station, or his designee, shall inform him of such right immediately upon being booked, and shall afford him a reasonable opportunity to exercise it.
