Facing Your Fourth OUI/DUI in Massachusetts?
After your second OUI/DUI, any subsequent offenses are considered felonies. This means the court takes them more seriously and they have bigger penalties, along with a minimum mandatory jail sentence.
For a fourth offense, 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, but every case is different and only an experienced attorney can fully explain all of your options.
If you are found guilty, penalties you will face can include:
- Minimum 2 years with a maximum of 5 years in jail
- A fine up to $50,000
- 10 year loss of license
- If you refuse a breath test for your fourth DUI offense, your license will be suspended for the rest of your life.
