REMINDER: Beefed Up DUI Patrols In Southern Rhode Island This Weekend May 16 Thru May 19

Posted by Matthew Marin | May 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

As reported earlier this week in the Providence Journal, the local and Rhode Island State Police will have increased patrols in Southern Rhode Island over the weekend from Friday May 16th through Monday May 19th. While the reason for the increased patrols was not reported in the paper, we can assume it is related to the University of Rhode Island Senior Week and graduation which is scheduled for this weekend.  More than 35 additional officers will be conducting DUI patrols, assisting both the local and State Police departments.

Am I going to Jail if I am convicted of my Rhode Island DUI charge?
One of the most frequently asked questions we get at the Law Offices of Matthew T. Marin, Esquire, Inc. is: "Am I going to jail if I am convicted of my DUI charge?"  For most people, the answer is an easy NO.  However, your Rhode Island DUI charge could result in a jail sentence IF any of the following apply to your case: (1) there was an accident and physical injuries resulted, (2) this is not your first offense (even if you were not previously convicted), (3) you were extremely intoxicated (high blood alcohol levels).  If you are charged with a first offense DUI without any of those extraordinary circumstances, then most likely your case will not result in a jail sentence.  Your best bet to stay out of jail is to contact Attorney Matthew Marin today and schedule an initial consultation to discuss your case with an experienced Rhode Island DUI Attorney.
