In Massachusetts, criminal motor vehicle offenses can be charged as misdemeanors, which carry a penalty of up to two and one-half years in the house of corrections, or as felonies, which can carry much longer sentences. In addition to jail time, vehicular offenses may result in suspension of your Massachusetts driver's license and substantially higher insurance premiums. Depending on the type of crime with which you are charged, you may not be able to apply for certain kinds of employment or you may lose your current job if it involves the use of a company car. If you have been charged with a vehicular crime, you should seek legal representation as soon as possible. A skillful criminal defense lawyer may be able to persuade prosecutors to charge you with a less serious traffic offense, or not to charge you at all.
