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.
