A frequently asked question the answer is fairly simple. Taking the time to consult with a professional with experience protecting client rights in OUI charges is one of the best decisions you could make. If it does nothing else, it will arm you with some basic information about the situation.
Given the experience of a DUI/OUI attorney, you may find that they have information and be able to shed light on avenues and topics that you did not previously think of. This information may help your case and impact the fines or jail time that you may receive.
While it is never an easy process for anyone facing OUI charges, a repeat offender will be faced with greater penalties, potentially, consisting of jail time, and not hiring a DUI/OUI attorney may put you in just the position to lose everything.
Although you may be under the impression that your case is likely to mean you will be convicted, lose your license and end up in jail, this is not necessarily the case. Remaining calm and seeking help from an experienced attorney who can take immediate actions on your behalf could be the key to a successful battle.
How long you lose your license depends on the nature of your conviction. In every court the prospects are different.
A first time offender in who has been convicted of an OUI offence can face a fine, a suspension of your license and jail time. It is possible, depending on your circumstances, that you could be in a position to receive a lesser penalty.
Those convicted drivers under the age of 21 have other specifications such as blood alcohol content of .02 as a base for intoxication instead of the standard .08 and a first time offense penalty of 210 day driver's license suspension. You could be eligible for a lesser penalty of 2 years of probation with a 14 day treatment program where you will be confined and you will be required to pay the costs, installation of an interlock device for 2 years, and a license suspension of 2 years.
Drivers who are on their second charge could face a thirty day to 2 ½ year jail stay, a fine from $600 to $10,000 and license suspension of 2 years.
In some cases, the OUI can be a felony and the penalties would be much greater including prison term and permanent loss of license. The DMV/RMV can also impose suspensions separate from the court orders in some cases.
Understanding the laws surrounding DUI/OUI can be complicated and overwhelming especially if you are the one being charged. Hiring an attorney with a great deal of experience in the matter and who understands that every situation is different is the key to making it through the ordeal with as little damage as possible. Letting an attorney who understands the local court system and the laws surrounding DUI/OUI prosecution is the best way to ensure that your life is put back on track as quickly as possible, minimizing the damage caused by the charges.
The laws surrounding DWI/WUI in both New Hampshire and Massachusetts are complex and penalties can be invoked differently based on the individual's specific circumstances. It is important to remember that while the State may impose penalties via the court the motor vehicles department may impose other penalties separate and away from these. Understanding the exact nature of the laws does not necessarily mean that you will receive the penalties as set forth under the law. You can read the laws surrounding these charges online.
