Many people may not think that it is a big deal to drive a car when your license is suspended. Wrong, in Massachusetts it is a big deal and depending on the circumstances can expose an individual to serious consequences. Under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 90 section 23 it is a crime to drive on a suspended or revoked license and if the reason for the suspension was an Operating Under the Influence (OUI) then the ramifications are greatly increased. If convicted of an OAS for OUI there is a mandatory 60 day jail sentence. With these types of potential penalties it is important to engage a criminal defense attorney early.
