Rhode Island DUI Overview

Due to the state of Rhode Island’s recent “crack down” on drunk driving offenders, the state’s DUI laws are among the harshest in the nation. An individual without proper representation from Providence DUI lawyer Matthew Marin is in danger of paying significant penalties include the loss of a license, thousands of dollars in fines, a criminal conviction on their record, higher insurance premiums, and jail time.

Driving under the influence (DUI) is one of the most commonly handed out charges in the criminal justice system. Refusing to take a chemical test after being stopped on suspicion of drunk driving carries its own penalties which can include the loss of a license for 6 to 12 months, fines, community service, DUI education classes, and other penalties. The majority of Rhode Island’s DUI accusations are misdemeanors. Despite this, receiving 3 DUI offenses within a 5-year period becomes a felony. In addition, Rhode Island enhances the DUI penalties for individuals who are convicted with a blood or breath alcohol level (BAC) of more than .15.
