Multiple Offense OUI Penalties

What are the punishments for being convicted of more than one OUI?

The more times a person is found guilty of an OUI, “Operating Under the Influence” , the greater the penalties are for multiple or subsequent offenses. Massachusetts law has recently been amended to increase subsequent OUI offenses after the fourth is committed. The following table summarizes the new penalties:

Multiple Offense OUI

Not less than two and one half years in a house of correction or state prison; nor more than five years in state prison; and a fine of not less than $2,000 nor more than $50,000

OUI—7th and 8thoffenses

Not less than three and a half years; nor more than eight years in state prison; and a fine of not less than $2,000; nor more than $50,000
