A Sudbury Town Committee Member will be arraigned on a third OUI charge from May 9th, when she drove her vehicle over an island and struck signs and collided with a granite post. She left a local restaurant, which was serving alcohol past the time allowed by the license. See article here.
A third drunk driving offense has harsh penalties. There is no alternative dispute resolution available, and there is a fine in place between $1,000.00 and $15,000.00. In addition to a suspended license for 8 years and a state seizure and sale of the vehicle, there is jail time of not less than 180 days (150 days mandatory), and no more than 5 years in State Prison.
