3 Tips for a Smashing Pumpkin Fest’ by NH Criminal Defense Attorney Mark Stevens 603-893-0074 (24/7)

pfest-2016_laconia-logoSince its’ inception in 1991 Keene, NH has always hosted the annual Pumpkin Festival known as “Let it Shine”.  However, after the circus of events deemed “The Keene Riot of 2014” which gained national media attention, the Keene City Council rejected its return for 2015 despite it being one of Cheshire Counties most anticipated annual events. #SorryKeene

That’s when Belknap County took one for the NH team and Laconia stepped up to the plate and became the new hosts for the Let it Shine!  Pumpkin Festival in 2015.  They have taken their pumpkin fest duties very seriously for all who look forward to seeing the glowing jack o’ lanterns each year.

3 Tips for a Smashing Time at Pumpkin Fest:

  1. 1. DO… attend Laconia Pumpkin Festival 2016 on October 22 and participate in contests and events. Live Free & Carve!
  2. 2. DON’T… smash and dash. Try out some Pumpkin Bowling or see what the Pumpkin Dump Derby is all about.  After the events of the Keene Pumpkin Fest in 2014, your much less likely to be charged with disorderly conduct when Pumpking Bowling or the Pumpkin Dump Derby, a post-p’fest event.
  3. 3. DO… attempt to and break the record for the Guinness Book of
     World Records. The annual event hosts contests and makes an attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records every year for the most amount of lit jack o’ lanterns at one time.

 Happy St. Patrick’s Day

from

     New Hampshire  DUI & Criminal Defense                             Lawyer Mark Stevens

   

 

St. Patrick’s Day anywhere near Boston, MA is  usually a day (or weekend) full of fun and other Irish-American traditions such as green beer, lucky clovers, and who knows maybe even a pot-o-gold, if you’re a lucky leprechaun that is. If you’re like the rest of us though, you may not be as lucky as a leprechaun while out enjoying your St. Patty’s Day, especially if the cops pull you over and want to ask you questions.

Remember you don’t have to talk to the cops!

New Hampshire Law of the Day: Disorderly Conduct

New Hampshire Law of the Day:

DISORDERLY CONDUCT

In honor of the upcoming Pumpkin Festival festivities and in lieu of the 2014 P-Fest Riots, it seemed only appropriate to share this Law of the Day on New Hampshire’s Criminal Law regarding Disorderly Conduct.

TITLE LXII
CRIMINAL CODE

CHAPTER 644
BREACHES OF THE PEACE AND RELATED OFFENSES

Section 644:2

644:2 Disorderly Conduct. – A person is guilty of disorderly conduct if:
I. He knowingly or purposely creates a condition which is hazardous to himself or another in a public place by any action which serves no legitimate purpose; or
II. He or she:
(a) Engages in fighting or in violent, tumultuous or threatening behavior in a public place; or
(b) Directs at another person in a public place obscene, derisive, or offensive words which are likely to provoke a violent reaction on the part of an ordinary person; or
(c) Obstructs vehicular or pedestrian traffic on any public street or sidewalk or the entrance to any public building; or
(d) Engages in conduct in a public place which substantially interferes with a criminal investigation, a firefighting operation to which RSA 154:17 is applicable, the provision of emergency medical treatment, or the provision of other emergency services when traffic or pedestrian management is required; or
(e) Knowingly refuses to comply with a lawful order of a peace officer to move from or remain away from any public place; or
III. He purposely causes a breach of the peace, public inconvenience, annoyance or alarm, or recklessly creates a risk thereof, by:
(a) Making loud or unreasonable noises in a public place, or making loud or unreasonable noises in a private place which can be heard in a public place or other private places, which noises would disturb a person of average sensibilities; or
(b) Disrupting the orderly conduct of business in any public or governmental facility; or
(c) Disrupting any lawful assembly or meeting of persons without lawful authority.
III-a. When noise under subparagraph III(a) is emanating from a vehicle’s sound system or any portable sound system located within a vehicle, a law enforcement officer shall be considered a person of average sensibilities for purposes of determining whether the volume of such noise constitutes a breach of the peace, public inconvenience, annoyance, or alarm, and the officer may take enforcement action to abate such noise upon detecting the noise, or upon receiving a complaint from another person.
IV. (a) Whenever a peace officer has probable cause to believe that a serious threat to the public health or safety is created by a flood, storm, fire, earthquake, explosion, riot, ongoing criminal activity that poses a risk of bodily injury, or other disaster, the officer may close the area where the threat exists and the adjacent area necessary to control the threat or to prevent its spread, for the duration of the threat, until related law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical service operations are complete, by means of ropes, markers, uniformed emergency service personnel, or any other reasonable means, to any persons not authorized by a peace officer or emergency services personnel to enter or remain within the closed area.
(b) Peace officers may close the immediate area surrounding any emergency field command post activated for the purpose of abating any threat enumerated in this paragraph to any unauthorized persons, whether or not the field command post is located near the source of the threat.
(c) Any unauthorized person who knowingly enters an area closed pursuant to this paragraph or who knowingly remains within the area after receiving a lawful order from a peace officer to leave shall be guilty of disorderly conduct.
V. In this section:
(a) “Lawful order” means:
(1) A command issued to any person for the purpose of preventing said person from committing any offense set forth in this section, or in any section of Title LXII or Title XXI, when the officer has reasonable grounds to believe that said person is about to commit any such offense, or when said person is engaged in a course of conduct which makes his commission of such an offense imminent;
(2) A command issued to any person to stop him from continuing to commit any offense set forth in this section, or in any section of Title LXII or Title XXI, when the officer has reasonable grounds to believe that said person is presently engaged in conduct which constitutes any such offense; or
(3) A command not to enter or a command to leave an area closed pursuant to paragraph IV, provided that a person may not lawfully be ordered to leave his or her own home or business.
(b) “Public place” means any place to which the public or a substantial group has access. The term includes, but is not limited to, public ways, sidewalks, schools, hospitals, government offices or facilities, and the lobbies or hallways of apartment buildings, dormitories, hotels or motels.
VI. Disorderly conduct is a misdemeanor if the offense continues after a request by any person to desist; otherwise, it is a violation.

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.

Merry Christmas from Salem, NH DWI Lawyer Mark Stevens 603.893.0074

The holiday season is here, and that brings with it increased police patrols all over the New Hampshire. Your chances of being stopped by the police are greater than ever due to increasing numbers of DWI roadblocks and “DWI saturation patrols”, which involve putting extra patrol cars on the road and making traffic stops for the most minor traffic infractions or equipment violations.

In fact, the New Hampshire State Police were actually given a grant to use by the end of the year that will allow them to super saturate the roadways over the holidays. Be advised you could find yourself in a variety of situations and it is best to know what to do before anything should occur!

More and more stops are made for having a plate light out, or an expired registration sticker. This is not because the police have taken a sudden interest in the robustness of your plate light; they need an excuse to stop you and look for drug or alcohol impairment. By taking a few simple precautionary steps you can reduce the risk of an unwanted encounter with the police this holiday season.

Here’s a Christmas Classic from nhdwilawyer:

 

Your chances of having an unwanted encounter with the police this month are high enough already. If you drive through a roadblock or even drive by a cruiser with an expired inspection sticker or a light out, it is like having a banner on your vehicle that says, “Stop Me”. A little precaution can avoid a lot of trouble.

 

    •Make sure that you are vigilant about keeping your license, registration and inspection stickers up to date. You should check all these today. You should also make sure that all the lighting is working on your vehicles before you drive, especially at night.
    •Burned out plate lights and tail lights are a magnet for blue lights during the holiday season. It is best to turn your car on and have a friend observe your plate lights and brake lights to insure they are working.

 

PREPARATION FOR GETTING STOPPED BY THE POLICE

It is not a bad idea to prepare for your car getting stopped. Don’t put your license in a difficult spot to pull it out quickly when you need to. Want to be super prepared? Practice taking your license out of your wallet in the safety of your home, then consider getting a registration holder if you do not already have one. (If you want one- send me an email with your mailing address and I will send you a registration holder for every one of your vehicles free of charge!) Then practice producing your license and registration fairly often, until it becomes natural. It will make it easier to do if you ever have to produce them under a pressurized roadside situation.
The best way to avoid getting arrested for DWI or any other crime is not to commit it. But many people who get accused of crimes did not commit them. If you practice the above tips you can take some proactive steps to lower your chances of being stopped and hassled by the police.

 

Have a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
