Multiple convictions for OUI in Massachusetts can result in extremely severe consequences. The length of a license suspension will reflect the number of prior OUI convictions, and past driving record.
What are the penalties for Multiple OUI Convictions?
If convicted of a second or third OUI or DUI offense in Massachusetts, drivers will be subjected to serious penalties. Those found guilty of multiple offenses can expect:
- Increased jail time
- Fines as high as $25,000
- Long-term license suspension
Massachusetts has enacted strict laws to discourage repeat drunk driving offenses and protect other drivers on the roads from intoxicated vehicle operators. A lifetime “lookback” period means that any conviction—no matter how long ago or where it occurred—will be a factor when charges on a new offense arise.
