Driver convicted of drunk driving twice in less than a month

Drunken driving charges can be very serious. Many states, including New York, have strict consequences for drivers who are convicted of driving under the influence. Possible consequences include jail time and license suspensions, among other penalties. For motorists who have repeated DUI convictions, the penalties can be harsher.

A man in Sheffield, Massachusetts will reportedly serve 14 months in jail following his second drunk driving conviction in under a month. His license had been suspended following his first conviction. According to reports, the man was taken into custody on charges of drunk driving after stealing and crashing a car. He also reportedly fled the scene of the accident. At the time of his arrest, the man’s blood alcohol level was purportedly two times the legal limit, at 0.14. No information was released regarding the method police used to obtain his blood alcohol level. They could have used a breath, urine or blood test.

Since this was not the man’s first time being accused of drunk driving, he was charged with second offense drunk driving charges, as well as driving with a license suspended for drunk driving. In addition, he will also face charges of theft, for stealing the car he crashed, and breaking and entering. The man also reportedly broke into a woman’s home. He reportedly pled guilty to all of the charges against him.

If you have been charged with DUI, it may be of benefit to obtain legal representation. An attorney will look out for your interests, as well as explain your options and answer any questions that you may have.
