Facing Your Second OUI/DUI in Massachusetts?
In the past decade, the legal consequences for repeat OUI/DUI offenders have changed significantly. Because it’s your second offense, you will face much greater and more serious penalties than your first offense. Unlike a first offense, a second offense means you face mandatory jail time and years of license suspension.
Since the laws surrounding repeat offenses have changed recently, it’s important for you to know all of your rights and options. An experienced attorney from our law office will help clearly explain your case to you.
For a second OUI/DUI, penalties can include:
- Minimum 60 days with a maximum of 2.5 years in jail
- Up to $10,000 in fines
- 2 years probation
- 2 week inpatient program and a 26 week aftercare program
- Up to 5 years loss of license
- Requirement to install a breathalyzer ignition lock on your car for up to 4 years
