Rutland, Massachusetts OUI Lawyer
Being arrested for an OUI is not an event to take lightly because the penalties against you are intense; even on a first OUI offense you could face up to two years in prison. Attorney Michael DelSignore has handled many first offense OUI cases in which the client does not have to plead guilty, however, each case is unique and provides its own difficulties.
Beyond the first offense the penalties of an OUI become more strenuous and harsh. It also becomes increasingly more difficult to prove innocence and keep you from steep fees and fines, and jail time.EAST BROOKFIELD DISTRICT COURT
