MASSACHUSETTS DRUNK DRIVING DEFENSE
Drunk driving laws are very complex in Massachusetts. Penalties for drunk driving offenses can be devastating and may include time in jail, fines, loss of license for long periods of time, probation, community service, and more. Under Melanie’s Law, punishments increase significantly for subsequent offenses. With your future and freedom on the line, you should promptly contact an experienced Massachusetts OUI lawyer if you are a Wilmington resident who is facing a drunk driving charge.
OPERATING UNDER THE INFLUENCE
In Massachusetts, the legal limit is .08% blood alcohol concentration (BAC) for persons 21 and older and .02% for persons under the legal drinking age. Operating a car can mean actually driving, but it can also mean something as small as changing gears, allowing a car to roll. If one is sitting or even sleeping in a parked car while drunk, this can lead to the inference that the person had been driving under the influence.
It’s not uncommon to be charged with operating under the influence after being arrested at an OUI/DUI/DWI roadblock or checkpoint. Experienced Massachusetts OUI lawyers are familiar with cases involving roadblocks and can find numerous ways to defend against the resulting charges. For example, there will not typically be any evidence of bad driving in these kinds of cases. Sometimes, a skilled OUI lawyer can successfully challenge the checkpoint on constitutional grounds or on the ground that the police set up the roadblock in a manner that was contrary to Massachusetts law.
