Much depends on your judge and your guidelines. What I do know is that you need an attorney ASAPAsk a similar question
The OUI charges carry a maximum possible punishment of 5 years in prison and a mandatory minimum of 30 days in jail. Because you have 2 prior felony charges, your maximum possible sentence becomes 10 years in prison.
What sentence you receive if convicted depends upon how your sentencing guidelines score, who the Judge is who is assigned to the case, whether or not the Judge would exceed sentencing guidelines based upon the injury involved. You also have to worry about a civil lawsuit as well, outside of this criminal case.
The lawyer you have can make a difference in the result you receive. The case has a possible defense based upon you only having presecribed medications in your bloodstream, which should be explored. I would recommend that you immediately hire an experienced criminal defense lawyer to represent you.Ask a similar question
