Arrested For Drunk Driving? Act Fast To Protect Your Rights.
In recent years, the penalties for drunk driving have increased significantly in many states. In Rhode Island and Massachusetts, prosecutors seek harsh sentences, including fines, suspended or revoked driver's licenses and jail time.
If you have been accused of DUI/DWI/OUI, whether it is your first offense or a repeat offense, it is important to talk to a criminal defense attorney about your rights and options as soon as possible. From the moment you were arrested, the police began working on its case against you.
At our Providence law office, we defend people who face a variety of DUI-related offenses. We will help ensure that you understand what you are up against, and we will do whatever it takes to achieve the best possible results for you.
Defending College Students Facing DUI, DWI and OUI Charges
A DUI charge, or an OUI in Massachusetts, can lead to potentially life-altering consequences. These can include the loss of your driver's license, a permanent criminal record, increased insurance costs and much more. College students can face additional problems.
Often, college students are arrested on fairly minor drinking and driving charges, resulting in long-lasting effects. DUI convictions can result in the loss of scholarships, revoked eligibility for extracurricular activities and even revoked college admission in some cases. Having a criminal record also makes it difficult to find employment, especially in today's competitive market.
At Mesolella & Associates LLC, we always aim to keep our clients' records clean. When we defend college students — whether they go to Brown University, The University of Rhode Island, Johnson & Wales University, or anywhere in the area — we do everything possible to ensure the charges do not harm their futures.
