Consequences of an OUI Conviction in Massachusetts

You could be facing significant penalties after being arrested for OUI in Wilmington. The punishments for a first-time offender in Massachusetts include one year of driver’s license suspension, a prison sentence of up to 2.5 years and fines of $500 to $5,000.

If this is not your first OUI, the penalties you face are increased. The same is true if you are facing an aggravated OUI for a high blood alcohol level, causing a car accident, or having someone 14 years old or younger in the vehicle. The best way to protect yourself from these consequences is by hiring an experienced Wilmington OUI defense attorney to represent you.

Why You Need to Hire a Wilmington DUI Defense Lawyer

A criminal defense lawyer in Wilmington will craft a strategic defense that aims to achieve the best possible results for your case. After a careful analysis of your circumstances, your lawyer will create a defense that is structured to protect you. Your defense strategy may include arguing against breath test results, an unreliable field sobriety test or an arrest without probable cause.

Your attorney will work toward a positive outcome such as case dismissal or acquittal (not-guilty verdict at trial). Your Wilmington OUI lawyer can also negotiate with the prosecution for a satisfactory plea bargain or alternative sentence. If an OUI conviction cannot be avoided, your lawyer will represent you in court to mitigate your penalties as much as possible.
