First Time OUI in Salem, MA

Have you been charged with a first time OUI offense?

When you have been arrested and charged in a first time OUI, it is important to know what your rights and possible course of legal action are. The state of Massachusetts has specific laws and penalties pertaining to first time OUI offenses. You have a difficult situation you are faced with and you need to know that your defense is in the hands a highly qualified, knowledgeable professional. Contact me, a Salem, MA criminal defense attorney, to start your legal defense today. If you are facing a first time OUI, your OUI charges may bring several penalties if convicted.

First time OUI penalties include:

  • Maximum $5,000 fine
  • Maximum 2 ½ years in a house of correction
  • 1 year license suspension

Depending on the circumstance surrounding your arrest the penalties, even for a first time offender, can be very harsh. At the same time, in a first OUI arrest you may be eligible to plead out in a diversion program whereby your case can be dismissed after certain criteria have been met.

This criteria may include:

  • 1 year probation
  • Mandatory alcohol education classes
  • Suspension of driver's license

As in any case, all elements of the arrest associated with the charges need to be investigated to make sure that none of your rights have been violated and all proper law enforcement procedures have been followed. This is where the importance of hiring an attorney with police procedure expertise becomes essential.
