The Ramifications of a DUI

If you are arrested for a DUI (Driving Under the Influence) or OUI (Operating Under the Influence) there are immediate ramifications.  Any and all of the following will apply in Massachusetts:

           Portable Breath Tests
           24D Program
           Probation Costs
           Breath Test Machines
           Court Fines
           Sobrietor Machines
           Minimum Mandatory Jail Sentences
           License Suspension and Duration of Suspension
           14 Day-in-Patient Treatment Program
           Hardship License (Cinderella License)

The unexpected ramifications may be job termination, a suspended license hindering you from finding new employment, court appearances, even jail time.  It can even prohibit you from qualifying for housing and college admission.

Moraski.  Call him anytime day or night at (978) 397-0011 for aggressive representation.

Massachusetts Weapons Possession

Here is an eye-opener if you did not already know it…the Commonwealth of Massachusetts has what may be the strictest guns and weapons possession laws in the country!  For example, if you are accused of possessing a firearm without a license you could be looking at a minimum of a year and a half in jail and suddenly your life has changed forever.

What about unlawful possession of other types of deadly weapons?   These may include switch blades, black jacks, daggers, knives with double edged blades, and even brass knuckles in addition to any type of weapon that may create mayhem.  You see, it doesn’t just have to be a gun.  It might be something that you are just showing off.

Massachusetts criminal attorney Paul Moraski has successfully defended numerous firearms and weapons charges by filing a Motion to Suppress the unlawful possession of Weapons.  Attorney Moraski knows your rights, and the 4th amendment of the Constitution prohibiting unlawful search and seizure is one of them.  If you or someone you care about has been accused of a weapons charge every minute counts.  Call Attorney Paul Moraski for vigorous defense throughout the Commonwealth at (978) 744-1200.
