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!
