Understanding DUI, DWI & OUI
In Massachusetts, operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol is referred to as an OUI, which is a criminal charge. A criminal law attorney can help you with your OUI (operating under the influence).
DWI refers to driving while intoxicated. OUI is driving under the influence. Along with OUI, they can refer to driving while being impaired due to drinking, eating, smoking, inhaling or taking any substance that hinders your ability to drive safely.
It’s important to know that the substance can be legal or illegal. OUI charges can be brought against you whether you were impaired while driving because of consuming alcohol, sniffing glue or taking pills a doctor prescribed to you.
The state of Massachusetts uses a graduated system of penalties that takes into account different factors, including how many OUI convictions you already have.
