Worcester OUI-Drugs Attorneys
OUI (operating under the influence) charges do not involve only alcohol. In Massachusetts, driving under the influence of an illegal drug constitutes an OUI/DUI offense as well. Operating under the influence of drugs has many names, including drugged driving, DUI of drugs, DUI drugs, OUI-drugs and OUI of drugs.
Have you been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of an illegal narcotic? You may be facing serious criminal charges and penalties. It is important that you involve an attorney who can defend your rights and interests in court and at your hearing with the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV), as you will also face the suspension of your driver's license.

About Massachusetts OUI-Drugs Charges
To obtain a conviction for operating under the influence of drugs, the prosecutor must prove three main elements beyond a shadow of a doubt: (1) the defendant was operating the vehicle, (2) on a public way, (3) under the influence of an illegal controlled substance.
All three elements must be proven so as to leave no possibility that the defendant may be innocent. The burden of proof in any criminal case lies with the prosecution.
The length of license suspension depends on the class of drug involved and the seriousness of the crime. Our lawyers can help you with the specifics, along with advising you on whether you would meet the requirements for a hardship license through the 94C drug offense hardship policies.
