Defense Against Charges Of Drunk Or Drugged Driving
Drunk driving is a serious offense. In Massachusetts, punishments for drunk or drugged driving — referred to as operating under the influence (OUI) — continue to get more and more severe. Moreover, whereas once the law defined drunk driving strictly as driving a vehicle with a blood alcohol level of .08, it has broadened to encompass other forms of impairment.
The penalties for a DWI/OUI charge can include:
- License suspension
- Mandatory driving classes
- Higher insurance rates
- Jail time
- Implementation of an interlock ignition device
Police can be overly aggressive when citing drunk driving offenses. You cannot talk your way out of a charge. Your best defense is to work with an experienced, tenacious criminal defense lawyer.
