Massachusetts Man Arrested for 5th DUI Offense

John S. King, of Yarmouthport, was arrested last Sunday night and charged on Massachusetts Drunk Driving Charges.

King was stopped by police on Route 6A after he narrowly averted a head-on collision with a police cruiser. He was charged with Operating Under the Influence of Alcohol, 5th or Subsequent Offense and Negligent Operation of a Motor Vehicle.

An OUI / DUI 5th Offense in Massachusetts is extremely serious, as it carries a potential for imprisonment of not less than 2.5 years and up to 5 years in state prison. In addition, a conviction for a 5th drunk driving offense will result in the lifetime revocation of the person’s driver’s license with no possibility of even ever obtaining a hardship or ‘cinderella’ license.

Moreover, since the passing the Melanie’s Law, prosecutors in Massachusetts DUI / OUI cases can further seek to have the person’s car forfeited!

Given the extreme and severe consequences involved, those charged with any DUI / OUI Offenses in Massachusetts should immediately Consult with a Drunk Driving Lawyer.
