OUI / DWI Defense in Salem, MA

Salem, MA OUI Attorney

If you are facing driving while intoxicated (DWI) / operating while intoxicated (OWI) charges in Massachusetts, your first step should be speaking with a Salem criminal defense attorney. Don't make the mistake of believing a DWI charge is not serious. Conviction could result penalties that you will be forced to deal with for the rest of your life.

The courts and law enforcement in Massachusetts takes OUI offenses seriously. Officials do everything in their power to convict those charged with the crime. A seasoned DWI attorney can review your case immediately and help you to understand your best course of action at this time.

OUI / DWI Penalties in Massachusetts

Penalties for a DWI in Massachusetts can be extremely harsh. You could lose your license, be forced to pay steep fines and even serve prison time. It is crucial that you fight for your license and work to have your OUI / DWI charges dismissed. Remember, if you have any previous drunk driving convictions your charges will become enhanced and the penalties can grow significantly.

The penalties for OUI / DWI in Massachusetts are as follows:

  • First Time DWI – For the first time you could be made to face up to 2.5 years in prison, fines of up to $5,000 and you could lose your license for one year.
  • Second Time DWI – A second conviction can bring a minimum of 60 days in prison, fines of up to $10,000 and license suspension for at least one year.
  • Third Time DWI – For a third DWI offense, the individual can face up to 5 years in state prison and no less than 180 days, fines can reach up to $15,000 and license suspension can be effective for 8 years.
  • Fourth or subsequent DWI – Any DWI charge after a third conviction could potentially result in a felony charge and the penalties will be even more severe. Having a permanent criminal record from an OUI charge can negatively affect you for the rest of your life.
