OUI 2nd Offense Massachusetts
Second Offense OUI Penalties
If you have been charged with a OUI second offense in Massachusetts, it is important to understand what penalties you are up against. A conviction for a second offense OUI carries up to 2 ½ years in jail, fines between $600 and $10,000 and a license loss of at least two years.
Even if you are able to avoid jail time, with a conviction of a second offense OUI you can expect a long period of probation, fines, and a two year license loss. Attorneys James G. DeGiacomo and Sergey Mikhlin will be with you step-by-step to ensure that you understand the process, and to protect your rights.
If you are charged with a second offense OUI, one of the first things that Attorneys James G. DeGiacomo and Sergey Mikhlin will ask you about is your prior conviction. Massachusetts has a life-time look back for OUI offenses, so that means even if you were convicted 20 years ago, it will still count against you. Depending on where and when your prior offense occurred, Attorneys James G. DeGiacomo and Sergey Mikhlin may be able to contest that it conforms with Massachusetts law or even reopen the old case and get it dismissed.
Chemical Test Refusals
If you refused the breathalyzer during your second offense OUI arrest, then the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles will suspend your licenses for three years. Because you are not eligible for a hardship license during this period, it is important to have an experienced OUI attorney evaluate your case to see how best to defend yourself.
