Massachusetts Motorists Facing Multiple OUIs
There are strict penalties that apply to motorists who are charged with repeat OUIs. At Fraser Law Office LLC, our defense lawyers can help you understand how this could potentially affect your most recent OUI case and provide you with skilled legal services throughout the criminal process.
Penalties For Multiple Offenders
If you have been convicted of an OUI/DUI previously, you could face serious penalties, including:
- OUI with a suspended license: If you were arrested for OUI while your license was suspended for a previous drunk driving conviction, you face a mandatory minimum sentence of one year in jail.
- Child endangerment OUI: If you are arrested for an OUI while a child 14 years of age or younger is in the vehicle, you could face a minimum 90 days in jail for your first offense and at least $1,000 in fines. On the second offense, the mandatory minimum jail sentence increases to six months and there is a minimum $5,000 fine.
- Ignition interlock device: If you have had two or more OUI convictions, and you receive a hardship license, an ignition interlock device will be placed on your vehicle, at your expense.
- Revoked registration and vehicle forfeiture: If you have had three or more OUI convictions, your registration will be revoked. With your fourth OUI, your vehicle may be taken away from you through forfeiture.
Additionally, every OUI conviction carries longer jail sentences, costly fines and longer license suspensions. We can help you understand your options and protect your interests throughout the criminal process.
