What is driving to endanger? Can I get that if I've been charged with an OUI?
There's a common misconception out there that driving to endanger is an automatic drop down from an OUI. Driving to endanger is a Class E misdemeanor punishable by up to six months in jail and a $1,000.00 fine. What it means if you have driven your car in a criminally negligent manner. You have essentially put yourself, property, or other people potentially in danger. So driving to endanger is a serious charge. It is oftentimes associated with a drop down from an OUI, but it's by no means a guarantee. Again, it's a Class E offense. It's a motor vehicle offense, which means, if you are convicted, you have not only a criminal record, but you have the points and Bureau of Motor Vehicle record associated with that conviction.
It is actually a fairly serious charge, though not to the same degree of severity of something like operating under the influence.
