Caught tampering with an ignition interlock device? Tampering with an ignition interlock device is itself a crime, as is blowing into an ignition interlock device on behalf of an intoxicated person. Contact our Worcester OUI/DUI lawyer for an initial consultation regarding either of these charges.
What New Changes Are In The OUI/DUI Law?
Recent changes in the OUI statute have also strengthened the prosecutor’s arsenal in prosecuting people charged with driving under the influence. Under current revisions the OUI/DUI law, a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or greater was merely one piece of evidence. Under revisions to the Massachusetts OUIDUI statute (also called Melanie’s Law), enacted in November 2005, the Commonwealth may now prosecute under either of two theories:
1. The accused was driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs.
2. The accused’s blood alcohol level was .08 percent or greater.
Proof beyond a reasonable doubt under either of these theories will get you a drunk driving conviction in a Massachusetts court. This is why breath test evidence obtained through administration of the Breathalyzer has become so critically important to an OUI defense. This is also why it is important to hire an experienced Massachusetts OUI/DUI defense attorney who is capable of pursuing all available defense options.
