Charged With An OUI Drugs Offense In Boston?
If you have been pulled over and charged with OUI based on drugs in your system, you are facing the same serious repercussions as those who have been arrested for drunk driving offenses. It does not matter if you have taken a legal prescription drug – if you are driving erratically, recklessly or negligently and are found to be operating a vehicle under the influence of ANY drug that is affecting your driving, you will be arrested.
If the drug is an illegal substance such as marijuana, cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine, heroin or another controlled substance and it is found in your possession, you may also be charged with possession. It is imperative that you get legal assistance from a Boston OUI drugs defense attorney at the Massachusetts Criminal Defense Group if this is the charge against you.

Boston OUI Drugs Defense Lawyer
Because a Breathalyzer test is not going to determine whether you are on a drug that is affecting your driving, this evidence will be of no value in an OUI drugs case. If you are asked to perform field sobriety tests, decline to do so and immediately contact a Boston OUI drugs defense attorney to protect your rights. It is often difficult to prove OUI drugs cases, and with the immediate assistance of a skilled and aggressive DUI drugs defense lawyer, many cases are dismissed.
Penalties If Convicted Of OUI Drugs
Should you be convicted of this charge, you will face the same serious penalties as a DUI or OUI offense. You will lose your license for a period of time, depending on whether you had an earlier DUI conviction on your record or an accident occurred before you were arrested. Many individuals may be observed by law enforcement to be under the influence of drugs when, in fact, they are merely in a state of shock after an accident. Whatever the situation in your case, do not proceed without a skilled Boston OUI drugs defense attorney fighting for you.
