Massachusetts DUI Laws
In the State of Massachusetts, a DUI or a OUI is a criminal charge for Operating Under the Influence involving the suspected use of alcohol or drugs. Even though an individual is found guilty if their blood alcohol content – or BAC – is above .08, it is not uncommon to be convicted of a DUI regardless of how much of a substance is ingested in Massachusetts
A person can be convicted of a DUI in Massachusetts if:
- His/her blood alcohol content is .08 or above
- The officer testifies based on certain observations that the driver was under the influence to a degree that renders them incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle
- Some combination of #1 and #2
Repeat Massachusetts DUI Offenses
A DUI in Massachusetts is a serious offense in and of itself, but repeat offenses call for even more tact. Repeat offenders face additional jail time, longer license suspensions, fines, penalties, and a required Ignition Interlock Device installed in their car. Repeat DUI offenders in Massachusetts are also subject to a five-year look back period. This means previous DUI convictions five years prior to the current accusation are taken into account during the sentencing. Second time DUI offenders are subject to 10 days minimum to 1 year maximum of jail time. Fines can reach up to $10,000, a license suspension of 1-2 years and a required IID. Third time DUI offenders face up to 2 1/2 years of jail time, fines of $15,000, license suspension for up to 8 years and a required IID.
