Melanie’s Law Increased Penalties For Multiple DUI Offenders

If you are facing a conviction for a second, third or fourth drunk driving offense, you are facing extremely serious consequences. In 2006, Melanie’s Law created big changes for those charged with multiple DUI/OUIs: If you were driving with a child under the age of 14 at the time of your arrest, you will also be charged with child endangerment.

Even when it appears that the prosecution and police have built a strong case against you, it is still possible to win at trial. At the office of Doran & Doran, P.C., attorney Francis M. Doran, Jr., knows both sides of the law in these cases. He has handled hundreds of such cases in his 25 years as a district attorney and now as a criminal defense attorney.

Contact Doran & Doran, P.C., to speak with a Framingham Melanie’s Law attorney today.

If it appears there is evidence that was illegally obtained or that the field sobriety tests were not administered correctly, as your lawyer, Francis M. Doran, Jr., will file motions to suppress the evidence. He will present your case fairly to the court, and a jury, if necessary.

When Was Your Last DUI?

If you have been charged with a second or additional OUI — even if your first OUI was many years ago — you need an experienced OUI criminal defense attorney to protect your right to drive.

You will be charged as a repeat offender if you collectively have more than one offense and it is within 10 years of your current offense. This can mean driver’s license suspension, hefty fines and jail time. The court may also order you to install an ignition interlock device on your vehicle at your own expense.
