Attorney Michele Da Silva is an aggressive criminal defense attorney with experience in defending drunk driving charges.  If you are facing OUI charges, It is important that you speak with a criminal defense attorney who understands the complexity of our legal system so that you may be properly informed of the consequences that you may face which can include long suspension of your driver's license for refusing to take the breathalyzer to imprisonment if you are convicted. 

What You Should Know​

Consequence of 2nd Offence Penanties for Operating Under the Influence (OUI/DUI)

If you are convicted of Operating Under the Influence you are subject to: 
​•Jail time: From 60 days to not more then 2 1/2 years (30 day mandatory to be served if the judge requires jail time in the sentence)
•Fines: $600-$10,000.
•License suspended for 2 years. (However, in cases where there is a breath test refusal or failure you won't be eligible for a hardship or full license restoration for at least 3 years total.)
•When your license suspension ends, and you are eligible for reinstatement, the registry will require that an Ignition Interlock Device is installed in your car (or any car you drive) for 2 years. This applies for either a hardship license or full license reinstatement.

You May Qualify for an Alternative Disposition if you are a 2nd time Offender

•2 years Unsupervised Probation
•14 day confined (2 week inpatient) alcohol treatment program
•Fine: $600. Total court imposed fees & fines including alcohol education program, 24 months of probation supervisions fees, OUI state fee, victim assessment, head injury fee, victim witness fee, and license reinstatement fees - over $4000 (not including interlock fees and increases to you car insurance rates
•License suspended for 2 years. However, in almost every case, with a breath test refusal or failure you won't be eligible for a hardship or full license restoration for at least 3 years total.)
•When your license suspension ends, and you are eligible for reinstatement, the registry will require that an Ignition Interlock Device is installed in your car for 2 years. This applies for either a hardship license or full license reinstatement.
•If your prior offense is over 10 years ago, you may be eligible for a 24D disposition, which would only be the penalties of a first offense. The Registry, however, would still treat you as a 2nd offender for license reinstatement.
