LICENSE SUSPENSION ISSUES

As a result of Melanie’s Bill enacted on October 28, 2005, so called “drunk driving” (OUI, DUI, DWI) suspensions have been dramatically enhanced. It is also important to realize that the Registry of Motor Vehicles is not bound by the Courts and any Court orders. For example, if you were charged as a second offense Operating under the Influence and the Court only found you Guilty of only a first offense with the first offense program, the Registry of Motor Vehicles will suspend your license as if you are a second offense and you will need to meet the requirements of a second offense for purposes of a hardship license, i.e. completion of a 14 day inpatient treatment facility and 26 weeks of aftercare.

Our DUI Lawyer Handles All Degrees of Offenses

OUI cases are now counted in a lifetime, regardless of when it occurred.

This includes OUT OF STATE OFFENSES.

FIRST OFFENSE

ALTERNATIVE DISPOSITION – MASS.GEN.L. CH. 90, § 24D

This is available to first offenses or for someone who has had a prior operating under the influence case that is more than ten (10) years old. The ten (10) year time period is calculated from the date of conviction for your first offense to the date of offense to the most recent offense.

NOTE: If you fall into the latter category the Registry will require you to install an interlock device for two (2) years after the conviction suspension expires – Be CAREFUL many attorneys do not know this.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The Registry of Motor Vehicles will not run any license losses concurrent. For example, if you refused the breath test, your license will be suspended for 180 days plus the 45-90 day suspension imposed upon your admission or conviction.
