    Answered . If found guilty, your terms of probation will probably limit your ability to travel out of state/country. Have your attorney ask the court for permission at the time of sentencing. However, why are you giving up so quickly to a guilty verdict. The breath test is a major piece of evidence in an OUI prosecution. If you did not provide one, you may bery well be found not guilty if you challenge the charge. There is no cost to consult with me. I would encourage you to call and let me hear the facts before you put yourself in a bad position. Please check out my web site for more information on OUI charges and read the testimonials of people who I have represented. You only have one chance to get this right. Don't blow it.

    Answered . Yes. In Canada, first offense OUI is considered a felony and Canada routinely denies Americans entry because of a first offense OUI. Visit my website for more information.
