December 15, 2017 – OUI (Operating Under the Influence) laws in Massachusetts can be among the most strict in the nation. A first time offender may get the minimum penalties, which include one-year probation, license suspension up to 90 days, and a mandatory 16-week drug/alcohol education program, but the consequences increase with additional factors, such as if there is child in the vehicle. Second offenses can be more severe and are more likely to carry a jail sentence. It’s important to know what rights and options that you may have if you face a criminal charge.
