Second-Offense OUI Attorney
The Penalties For A Second Conviction Are Harsher – Call Us Today at 413.585.9200
Massachusetts has some of the strictest laws in the nation when it comes to a second or subsequent OUI offense. Unlike other states, where an OUI/DUI offense will “fall off” your record after a set period of time, time, Massachusetts has an unlimited lookback period – this means that a previous OUI conviction will count as a prior offense, no matter how long ago it occurred.
At the Law Offices of Jesse Adams, our Northampton OUI attorney understands the serious penalties you’re facing. More importantly, he knows how to craft a strong, trial-tested defense on your behalf. As a former Northampton city council member, you can trust that Jesse is well-known and well-respected by judges, prosecutors, and lawmakers alike.
A second OUI conviction can cost you your driving privileges, your career, and even your freedom. Call 413.585.9200 today to learn how we can help.
What Are The Penalties For A Second OUI In Massachusetts?
Many people are often surprised to learn how severe the penalties are for a first-time OUI, and for a second conviction, the penalties are even harsher. Since Massachusetts has an unlimited lookback period, any prior drunk-driving conviction will count as a prior offense.
- If you’ve been arrested for a second OUI, you could face the following penalties:
- Between 60 days to 2.5 years in jail
- Fines totaling as much as $10,000
- A suspension of your driver’s license for up to 3 years
- Mandatory installation of an ignition interlock device in your car
However, many of these penalties can be avoided with the right defense. In many cases, our Northampton DUI lawyer is able to get these charges dismissed; even if this is not a possibility, we still may be able to reduce the penalties you’ll face and help you move on with your life. The consequences of a conviction are simply too great to risk facing them alone.
Don’t face these charges alone. Put a strong advocate in your corner by contacting us today.
