What Is a DUI/OUI in Holliston?

OUI or driving under the influence (DUI) is defined as operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor and/or drugs by Massachusetts General Laws c.90 § 24. This law states that driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) level at or above 0.08 is prohibited for drivers over the age of 21.

At under 21 years of age, any level of intoxication is against the law while driving. Even with a BAC less than 0.08, a driver could be arrested for OUI in Holliston if the law enforcement officer suspects a level of impairment that prevents the driver from safely and properly operating a motor vehicle.

Penalties for OUI in Massachusetts

The penalties for operating under the influence in Massachusetts can include a fine of $5,000 (plus much more in additional fees and surcharges), jail time, driver’s license suspension or revocation, probation, a drug or alcohol education course, and an ignition interlock device. In addition, your car insurance costs can escalate for many years after an OUI conviction.

Defenses Against OUI Charges in Holliston

One of the main benefits of hiring an attorney to represent you during an OUI case in Holliston is the strength of your defense. Your lawyer will craft the strongest and most effective defense possible to protect you from drunk driving penalties.

Common defenses that may be used include:

  • Lack of probable cause or reasonable suspicion
  • Missing elements or insufficient evidence for a conviction
  • Inaccurate breath, blood or urine alcohol or drug tests
  • Improperly conducted field sobriety tests
  • Rising blood alcohol defense
  • Medical conditions
  • Violation of constitutional or Miranda rights

Your lawyer will fight for a positive case outcome on your behalf, such as acquittal (being found not guilty at trial) or case dismissal. If this is not possible, your lawyer can negotiate with the prosecution to seek a plea bargain that involves reduced charges and mitigated penalties.
