The Maine Defender

If you have been charged with OUI, you will face two separate proceedings. One is a criminal case in court with potential fines, jail and a license suspension. The other is an administrative license suspension proceeding with the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. The BMV will mail you a Notice of Suspension usually within a couple of weeks after the incident. Make sure the BMV has your current mailing address so you don’t miss the notice. You have due process rights to fight both proceedings.
