There has been some controversy and there have been arguments in some cases, military veterans maybe able to avoid convictions for driving under the influence because of the recognition of the impact being in the military. The SJC in Massachusetts made that determination where there are very limited exceptions for returning military members where judges have some ability to have the charges dismissed if they complete certain programs and it is an alternative to what the criminal conviction might have otherwise been.  The idea is that the Court recognizes some of the unique circumstances such as PTSD and others that veterans come back face and in a way to have less of an impact on their veterans lives with an OUI case.
