SECOND OFFENSE OUI- Liquor or .08%
Unlicensed Operation of a Motor Vehicle
Client was a hard-working musician who was charged with OUI, for the 2nd time. Moreover, he was charged within ten years of each other which makes him ineligible for an otherwise very favorable disposition. According to police, he negligently drove into a parked car. And what made this case unique was the police observed him firsthand, whereas normally, they respond to the scene of the accident, on this occasion they witnessed it. Client was polite and agreed to take sobriety test, which he failed. He also agreed to a breathalyzer test which he failed. He simply wanted to deal to resolve everything and simply wanted to take responsibility. The District Attorney took everything into consideration, including his background and lack of serious criminal history and agreed to have him not go to jail, nor have any conditions of probation such as a SCRAM device or random drugs screens. The result was to go to negotiate the minimum of a sixty-day house of correction sentence, suspended for a two-year period. Client will also be required to attend a mandatory two-week impatient program, with aftercare.
RESULT: 2nd OFFENSE OUI, Standard 2nd Offense Statutory Disposition, Unlicensed Operation NOT RESPONSIBLE.
