When Is An OUI/DUI Charge Considered A Felony?
Most first and second OUI/DUI offenses are considered misdemeanors in Massachusetts. A misdemeanor charge is one where a judge can impose a jail sentence of no more than 2 1/2 years. Felony charges arise in two situations:
- Being arrested for your third (or subsequent) DUI/OUI charge
- Being involved in an accident that involves a death or serious bodily injury
Felony convictions carry with them stiff penalties, including significant fines, extended license suspension, mandatory minimum jail time and the possibility of lengthy prison sentences of more than 2 1/2 years.
