STATE v. A.M.
Charge: 2nd Offense OUI with a .30% BrAC
Mandatory Minimum Penalty: 3 year loss of license; $700 fine; 7 days jail
Maximum Penalty: 364 days jail; $2,000.00 fine
Summary: Client was heavily intoxicated and was pulled over by the Maine State Police for erratic operation. Client was ultimately arrested for OUI and blew a .30% BrAC, which was more than 4x the legal limit!
Result: Client had major mental health and substance abuse issues. Client enrolled in an in-patient substance abuse program shortly after the arrest. As a result of the tremendous amount of work that the client did on herself, without prompting by the DA, the charge was reduced to a 1st offense OUI with no jail and a fine of $500.00.
