OUI / DUI / DWI
Chances are you never expected to get arrested for Operating Under the Influence (OUI, also known as DUI- Driving Under the Influence or DWI- Driving While Intoxicated) in Massachusetts. Now it is time to deal with your pending OUI. Whether you were arrested in Hampden, Hampshire, Berkshire, Franklin or Worcester County, understand that the State of Massachusetts will prosecute you to the fullest extent of the law. As your Massachusetts OUI attorney, my responsibility is to ensure that every angle of your case is explored, in order to build the best OUI defense possible.
In the state of Massachusetts, operating under the influence (OUI) is legally defined as the criminal act of driving a motor vehicle on a public way while under the influence of drugs, alcohol, or both. It is also the criminal act of driving a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher. For first time offenders, OUI charges are usually classified as misdemeanors. However, charges can be enhanced if the person caused bodily harm to another person or extensive property damage. For multiple OUI offenders, charges are automatically enhanced, and could be classified as felonies.
Once a person is convicted of driving under the influence in Hampden, Hampshire, Berkshire, Franklin or Worcester County, he/she can be punished with:
- jail time
- driver’s license suspension
- community service
- driver alcohol education
- mandatory counseling
- vehicle impoundment
