    Understanding OUI Charges in Massachusetts

    Under Massachusetts law, a driver can be charged with operating under the influence, or "OUI," if they operate a motor vehicle in a public place and their ability to drive has been impaired by an intoxicating substance. An OUI arrest can also occur if the drivers' blood alcohol concentration (BAC) is above .08% or higher.

    Consequences of a First-Time DUI Offense in Massachusetts

    Being arrested for Operating Under the Influence (OUI) in Massachusetts is a serious criminal defense matter.

    Penalties for first-time offenders may include:

    • Steep fines from $500-$5000
    • Jail time up to 2.5 years
    • Loss of driver's license for up to 1 year

    When is an OUI a Felony in Massachusetts?

    A third offense of OUI is a felony. Multiple violations can increase the time limits on these penalties.

    If you were recently pulled over for drunk or drugged driving in Worcester or Middlesex counties, you must act to limit the consequences and prevent a black mark from appearing on your record.

    Many OUI attorneys take the easy way out. Instead of fighting for their clients in court after an OUI arrest, they urge them to take a plea bargain.

    At Burke Levy, P.C., our first instinct is not to settle but to fight. If you retain our law office, we will investigate the evidence, including arrest records, police reports, the arresting officer's training, experience and history, and other relevant information. If we can determine that you were arrested improperly - due to a failure to observe arrest protocol, improper administration of (or false positives from) Breathalyzer or blood testing, or general lack of evidence - we will work to have your OUI charge dismissed before trial, or acquitted if a trial is needed.

    Only when there are no better options will our team seek a plea bargain. In such cases, we will seek to limit the negative consequences by seeking an alternative disposition instead of jail time.

    Don't face OUI charges in Massachusetts alone. Contact Burke Levy, P.C. today to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced OUI Attorneys!
