Operating a vehicle while under the influence (OUI) involves driving a car with a BAC of 0.08% or higher or while under the influence of drugs. The state of Massachusetts has strict laws that were put in place to keep the roads safe and free of intoxicated drivers.
If you have been pulled over and arrested for OUI, it is important to hire a Brockton criminal defense lawyer from Benzaken & Wood LLP to represent you right away. The OUI laws encourage very strict punishment for individuals who are convicted of operating under the influence and a charge of this nature should be taken seriously.

The arresting officer and any other members of law enforcement involved must follow the law carefully, and when they fail to do so it can lead to an unfair arrest.
