The First Offender "Operating Under the Influence" (OUI) Program is an alternative sentencing program that allows a person convicted of an OUI (with no prior convictions) to be sentenced to participation in a weekend of substance abuse program and community service in lieu of spending 3 days in jail.
How it Works
The convicted person, or inmate, must pre-register and pay a program fee. Inmates spend Friday evening through Sunday evening at a location where community service is needed such as a church or school. The inmate performs community service and participates in substance abuse counseling which includes changing behavior to avoid the possible horrific events that could occur while operating a vehicle while under the influence.
Staffed by Corrections Officers, inmates are strictly monitored, and are expected to fully participate in all aspects of the program.
