OUI Defense Attorney Serving Greenfield
In Massachusetts, you are subject to two different charges if you are stopped on suspicion of drunk driving. You will have to deal with a Massachusetts administrative license suspension as well as the criminal charge for OUI, which can also trigger license suspension.
Driver's Licenses Can Be Suspended for Many Years
With the administrative proceeding, your license can be suspended for anywhere from 30 days all the way up to five years for failing or refusing a chemical test. Additionally, with the criminal charges, the license suspension will vary depending on your driving record. It is highly recommended that you contact a Greenfield DUI defense attorney to evaluate your case and review your options with you to protect your driving rights.

Penalties for Driving on a Suspended License
If you are a repeat offender, driving a motor vehicle when your license is already suspended for an OUI conviction must be avoided as it becomes a new criminal offense. Penalties include larger fines and substantially more jail time than for a first offense. And if you're on probation for DUI and drive with a suspended license, you will also be violating your probation. You will end up facing penalties for the probation violation as well. Drivers who are convicted of DUI while driving on a suspended license from a prior DUI conviction will face a minimum one-year mandatory jail sentence.
