Amorello admits to operating under the influence (OUI) in haverhill district court related to a car crash in august

Matt Amorello the former chairman of the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority admitted in Haverhill district court to operating under the influence related to a car crash back in August in which he struck two parked vehicles and then continued to try and drive his vehicle after one of the wheels had fallen off. He refused the breathalyzer at the time, causing a loss of license for 180 days and today received a further 45 day loss of license after making his admission.

Amorello was charged with Operating under the influence in Massachusetts, as a first time offender he is eligible to receive an alternative disposition which allows for a person to waive his rights to a trial and make an admission at which time a Judge may not find him guilty but rather continue the case without a finding (known as a CWOF) usually for a one year period in which the person is on probation. An alcohol class must be completed, it is essentially a drunk driving course which is one evening a week for approximately sixteen weeks. The drunk driving charge carries fines and fees totaling close to one thousand dollars. Once a person signs up for the Alcohol course they then can apply for a hardship license also known as a Cinderella license which allows a driver to drive for a twelve hour period every day. If the person pays all the fines and completes the program and probation without picking up any new charges the case will be dismissed at the end of the term of probation.

An experienced boston criminal lawyer who is familiar with what to look for and knows how to fight operating under the influence (OUI) charges or drunk driving charges should be consulted as soon as possible after being arrested. A second offense OUI and third offense OUI carry heavier sentences and carry the potential of jail if convicted. Massachusetts has a stepped approach to drunk driving where every new offense a person faces carries a longer and longer jail sentence. Drunk driving charges carry minimum mandatory sentences in jail when you start facing 3 or more convictions.

Separate from the criminal court the registry of motor vehicles suspends a person’s licenses after an admission to an alcohol related driving offense. The registry’s suspensions become more and more severe as the offenses increase in number. You need a lawyer who is familiar with the registry of motor vehicles and obtaining hardship licenses.
