Facing Your Fifth OUI/DUI in Massachusetts?
When you are accused of a fifth OUI/DUI, you’re in big trouble. A fifth offense comes with a mandatory jail sentence and a lifetime loss of license. If convicted, you will never be able to drive a car again.
We recommend reviewing all of your options. Many times, it is better to take the case to trial because there’s a chance you will be found innocent and not have to go to jail. However, every case is different and only an experienced attorney can fully explain all of your options.
If you are found guilty, penalties you face can include:
- Mandatory minimum of 2.5 years with a maximum of 5 years in jail
- A fine up to $50,000
- A lifetime loss of license
- You will be ineligible for a hardship license
