Out of State OUI
Massachusetts Consequences for an Out of State OUI
If you are charged with impaired driving in another state, it is critical that you speak with a Massachusetts attorney about any potential impacts that you may face in Massachusetts. If you hold a Massachusetts license, the Registry of Motor Vehicles (“RMV”) and you accept responsibility for an impaired driving offense in another state, the RMV will suspend your license just as if the offense took place in Massachusetts. G.L. c. 90, §22. Even if you have yet to be convicted of any criminal charges, the RMV can suspend your license indefinitely if you have been suspended out of state.
Massachusetts OUI license suspensions are harsh, and before you make any decision about how to handle your out of state matter, you need to know all of the potential consequences and assess all of your options. You need to speak with an attorney who is experienced with the RMV and trained in OUI laws in order to put yourself in the best possible position to avoid any license suspension. The Law Offices of Joseph D. Bernard can work with your out of state attorney and provide you with guidance to protect your ability to drive.
