Guilty Upon Cooperation? Blowing Into the Breath Test Hose Can Get You Convicted, Whether You’re Drunk or Sober by Mark Stevens 603-893-0074

Guilty if You Cooperate? Blowing Into the Breath Test Hose Can Get You Convicted, Whether You’re Drunk or Sober by Mark Stevens 603-893-0074

New Hampshire has some heavy-duty consequences if convicted of some DWI laws that prohibit you from driving while intoxicated. No one encourages any one to drive drunk, so a law that prohibits drunk driving makes sense. But that’s only half of the law. The law includes a “per se” provision that prohibits people from driving with a breath or blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher, or a .02 or higher if the driver is under 21. The .08 and the .02 numbers have absolutely nothing to do with whether the driver is drunk or not; in fact that’s why the numbers were created, to make it easy for the state to prosecute people whether they’re drunk or not. Few drivers under the age of 21 are drunk at a .02 level, not even close. It’s just an arbitrary number with origins in politics, not science.

Upon arrest for DWI, the driver is faced with a difficult decision: whether to blow into an old box, placing his faith, freedom and right to drive in the accuracy of an old box with a rubber hose attached to it. Or,  the driver could refuse and face a potential license suspension. If the driver asks the police officer any questions about this choice, the police are trained to say that they can’t help.  Instead, tell them you want to speak with your lawyer, and call Attorney Mark Stevens 24/7.

Call Mark Stevens, he can help and will know what to do. Call Salem, NH Attorney Mark Stevens 24/7 @ 603.893.0074.

5 Reasons to Fight Your DWI Case in New Hampshire

5 Reasons to Fight Your DWI Case in New Hampshire by Salem, NH Criminal Defense DUI Attorney Mark Stevens 603.893.0074 (24/7 or roadside)

 

You may feel as if your life is over after getting arrested for a DWI in New Hampshire. Attorney Mark Stevens has seen many people whom contact him for advice after they pleaded guilty to a DWI. Unfortunately for them, it is too late. The arrest and conviction will be on their record forever. These folks have trouble getting jobs, moving to new apartments, getting approved for loans. It’s sad to see. If only we would’ve been able to reach them BEFORE they were convicted; things may have been different.

 

It’s so important to fight your DWI charges. Your freedom, your driver’s license and your job could be at risk if you plead guilty. These are just a few of the reasons why fighting the charges may be the best decision you can make after a New Hampshire DWI arrest:

• The prosecution may not be able to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you are guilty. A New Hampshire DWI defense attorney will look at the ins-and-outs of your case and may notice that there are defenses. Maybe the police officer didn’t operate the breath test machine properly. Perhaps the breath machine wasn’t calibrated correctly and misread your BAC level. An experienced DWI attorney can find these issues and argue them for you.

• The consequences of a DWI can put a huge roadblock in your life. Think about what it is like to not have a driver’s license. There are so many things you can’t do without one, beyond just driving. Now, think about what it is like to go to jail. It’s a scary thought, right? However, jail is definitely a possibility if you plead guilty to certain types of New Hampshire DWI charges, like aggravated DWI or DWI subsequent charges. What would happen if you lost your job? What would happen if you can’t get a job 10 years from now because of this mistake? It’s not fair, but it’s exactly what happens to many of those who plead guilty.

• Fighting your case can actually be cheaper than pleading guilty. The average costs for a DWI conviction can be higher than the legal fees for a DWI. If you plead guilty, you will likely have court costs and fines. In addition, you may have to get transportation to and from work for an extended period of time after your license is suspended, your insurance premium will go sky-high, you could lose your job. It is worth it? Probably not. The best thing to do may be to hire a lawyer and fight the case.

• A skilled New Hampshire DWI attorney has the knowledge you need to fight your case. We have all seen TV courtroom dramas, but don’t think you can fight your New Hampshire DWI on that knowledge alone. There is a New Hampshire DWI lawyer waiting for your call to help someone like you fight their DWI: an attorney who defends people after their DWI arrests.

• There is still hope. You shouldn’t give up without a fight. If you fight your charges you will have a chance to save your license and your freedom. If you plead guilty, you will lose any opportunity to have your DWI charges dropped. If you fight, you have a chance of coming out of this situation unscathed. Why not try? You have a Constitutional right to a trial –take that right and fight!

We look forward to speaking with you about your case!  Please contact Attorney Mark Stevens at 1-603-893-0074 TODAY or visit NHCrime.com  if you have been charged with DWI or aggravated DWI.

Hassled by the Cops in Loudon, NH? Call New Hampshire DWI Defense Lawyer Mark Stevens- He’ll Know What to Do! 603.893.0074 (24/7)

Busted for DWI at the NH Motor Speedway? Call NH Defense Attorney Mark Stevens and Lawyer Up! 1-603-893-0074 24/7  New Hampshire DWI laws and New Hampshire criminal laws in action. Be prepared to assert your Miranda rights and call Attorney Stevens today at 1-603-893-0074. Once the questions about drinking start, you are probably about to get arrested. Free initial consultation and case evaluation. We look forward to speaking with you.

Here are a few tips and precautionary methods to help avoid any unwanted contacts with the cops:

1. Make Sure Your Inspection Stickers and Registrations Are Valid

An important reminder if you are driving this weekend is to make sure that your car has a valid inspection sticker, as well as a valid registration. When you drive into a roadblock, or even drive by the police this weekend without a valid inspection sticker you can count on being stopped and hassled. The police will take any chance they can get to pull you over for any reason! Like all other motor vehicle codes, the police often co-opt this to see if you have been drinking or have drugs in your car. The penalty for a violation of this section of the motor vehicle code is $60, but the real penalty is when the police smell alcohol or suspect that you have been drinking after stopping you for the lack of an inspection sticker. Many drivers who are initially stopped for this minor violation end up charged with DWI, DUI or OUI. AVOID one potential for this by making sure your inspection stickers are up to date.

2. Make Sure Your Plate Lights and Other Lights Work

Everyone driving at night should check their brake lights, plate lights, and other lighting, as well as their inspection stickers and license plates, to avoid some unwanted interaction with police. Avoid giving the police some of these chances to legally stop you by making sure that all your lights are functioning, your registration and inspection stickers are up to date, and your license is valid.

3. Don’t Tell the Cops You Take Prescription Meds

So what happens when the police think you’re intoxicated but they can’t smell alcohol? They will usually ask you if you take any medications. If a cop suspects you of intoxication and asks you if you take medications, you are at high risk to get arrested. If you answer “yes” and describe what you take, even if it’s prescribed to you, it increases your risk of arrest.

There is no better time to exercise your right to remain silent and your right to a lawyer than when a cop asks you if you are taking prescription drugs. Most innocent people believe that if they explain to the police that they are taking medications exactly as their doctor prescribed them they will steer clear of the DWI net the police are trying to catch them in. Wrong. Be careful how you answer any question posed by the police when you are stopped.

Choose your actions wisely!  Be polite; don’t be a jerk, even if the officer is completely off-base for arresting you in the first place.  Don’t cry, bash your head against the cruiser window, tell the cop you want to die, don’t call the cops names or tell him he’s stupid, or anything else of that nature.  Don’t tell him you know important people, that you know a lawyer, or that he is going to be sorry for arresting you.  He’s not.

In this video Salem, NH criminal defense lawyer Mark Stevens explains why you don’t have to talk to the cops. If the police question you regarding involvement in any type of crime, you aren’t required to answer.  Remain silent and remember to call your lawyer before you speak to the cops.  You can focus on your defense by remaining silent.  Watch this video for more:
