Hello. Fourteen years ago I was convicted of driving under the influence in MA and got fined. Since then I've had a clean record and been very careful about driving under the influence. Then last week I went to a wedding and had several drinks. I felt OK and only had to drive five miles to get home but I got pulled over and now I'm facing another DUI charge (or OUI?). What is the look-back period in Massachusetts when considering whether to charge a person with a second offense? I've been told that it's ten years and that I should be OK. Can you confirm that for me? Thanks.
