    Default OUI in Maine, First Offense

    I was recently arrested for OUI. I made a bad decision, and I am not arguing that. I don't see any reason to plead anything but guilty, since I blew a .16. My questions are can I get a restricted license for work and school? I am a full time student, work full time, and live in a rural area with no public transportation. I have had no other criminal or traffic related charges. I was very cooperative with the officer. I am also wondering if I need a lawyer, since I really can't afford one. Any help would be appreciated.

    You will find a lot of information in the following links:

    http://www.bouloslaw.com/oui.htm

    I also will add, that you should really consider consulting with an attorney.

    I would encourage you to at least consult a criminal defense lawyer. If you cannot afford a lawyer, you will likely qualify for a court-appointed lawyer.
