Case Results



Charge: OUI (drug)

Maximum Penalty:  364 days jail; $2,000.00 fine; 150 day license suspension

Summary:  Client was a power line worker who was working in Maine to bring our citizens back online with power, following a huge ice storm.  Client was from out of state and a conviction for OUI would mean a loss of license and his job.  Client was stopped for operating his unmarked truck while operating an emergency "yellow" light.  During the stop, the officer observed indicia of intoxication and had him step out of the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests.  The Client performed poorly and was arrested for OUI.  He tested positive for marijuana in his system and was charged with a drug OUI.

Result:  The OUI was dismissed in return for a plea of guilty to Driving to Endanger for a fine of $575.00 and a suspension of his privilege to drive in Maine for 30 days.  Since the Client has an out-of-state license, the 30 days will not be honored by his home state and he continue to drive everywhere else during that time period.  Client was very pleased with the outcome.
