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!

Black Friday Shoplifting: Post-Arrest Tips from Attorney Mark Stevens Salem, NH DWI & Criminal Defense Lawyer 603.893.0261 (24/7)

Black Friday Shoplifting: Post-Arrest Tips:

When Loss Prevention or The Police Want to Hassle You

Black Friday. Some stores are open earlier and close later. It is the biggest shopping day of the year here in New Hampshire. And with power shopping comes some shoplifting, “willful concealment” and other theft charges. Some of these are misunderstandings, some are caused by the stress of the holidays and some of course are actual thefts. This weekend usually results in a lot of arrests for shoplifting, “willful concealment” and other theft charges all across New Hampshire, but the number of shoplifting arrests in Rockingham County, Hillsborough County and Strafford County are particularly high on Black Friday due to some major shopping areas in those counties.

So what happens in that “worst-case” scenario, when a loss prevention person taps you on the shoulder and asks you to come to their back room gulag for questioning? Be careful what you do next. Here are some ideas:

WHEN LOSS PREVENTION WANTS TO HASSLE YOU:

1. Don’t volunteer any statements, especially if they would admit guilt. Ask to speak with your lawyer immediately. You do not have to answer these peoples’ questions. They will threaten to call the cops. The cops are coming no matter what you say, so just be quiet and wait for them.
2. Don’t sign any confessions. The loss prevention people are not there to help you. They will sometimes hand you a confession to sign. Don’t let them bully you into signing anything. Signing a confession is bad.
3. Don’t agree to have your picture taken by the loss prevention people. They can’t make you have your picture taken; they are store employees not cops. They will try to get you to make all sorts of admissions. You do not even need to give loss prevention, store security or mall security your identification.
4. Don’t answer the loss prevention questions about other thefts they may try to implicate you in, such as “we know you stole x, y and z…”. If they could prove this they wouldnt need to ask you about it. 5. The cops are coming. Just wait for then to arrive, and peacefully accompany them to booking. Note that the real cops CAN take your pictures, but you still dont have to answer their questions.

WHEN THE REAL COPS ARRIVE:

1. Peacefully go along with the arresting cop.
2. Ask to speak to you lawyer immediately.
3. Remain silent about the alleged offense.
4. Do not sign any confessions.
5. Do not agree to “interviews” with the police about theft charges.

PREPARE:
1. Program my cell phone number 1-603-785-6458 into your phone right now!
2. If there is any possibility of a weekend arrest have cash for bail on hand.
3. Think about who you would call for a ride if needed from the police station.

 

Have a safe and happy holiday and Happy Black Friday!

Remember, call me right away after you get released: 1-603-785-6458.

New Hampshire Law of the Day: Resisting Arrest by Salem, NH DWI Lawyer Mark Stevens 603.893.0074

If you have been arrested for resisting arrest in New Hampshire or were charged with resisting detention or resisting arrest in New Hampshire, the penalties can be severe and the consequences are harsh if you are convicted.  Sometimes this charge is compiled into a DWI charge if: the driver questions the cop about why he or she is being arrested, when they are actually NOT driving while intoxicated. An arrest or conviction for resisting arrest can haunt you for a long time. If you have been charged with resisting arrest or DWI or both in any New Hampshire Court, please feel free to call me today (24/7) at 603-893-0074 for a free consultation to discuss your case and your options. I look forward to hearing from you!

Here is what they have to prove beyond a reasonable doubt to obtain a conviction for resisting arrest or resisting detention in New Hampshire:

TITLE LXII New Hampshire Criminal Code
CHAPTER 642 Obstructing Governmental Operations

RSA 642:2 (2011)

RSA 642:2 Resisting Arrest or Detention.

A person is guilty of a misdemeanor when the person knowingly or purposely physically interferes with a person recognized to be a law enforcement official, including a probation or parole officer, seeking to effect an arrest or detention of the person or another regardless of whether there is a legal basis for the arrest. A person is guilty of a class B felony if the act of resisting arrest or detention causes serious bodily injury, as defined in RSA 625:11, VI, to another person. Verbal protestations alone shall not constitute resisting arrest or detention.

A CALL TO ACTION:

Call Attorney Mark Stevens today for a free consultation @ 1-603-893-0074 (24/7) or visit Attorney Stevens @ NHCrime.com right now to fill out an online consultation request.

Law of the Day: DRIVING AFTER SUSPENSION

New Hampshire DUI Lawyer. New Hampshire DWI Laws are harsh but New Hampshire DWI penalties are harsher.

Here’s a copy of NH’s “Operating after Suspension” or “Driving after Revocation” law:

License Suspension and Revocation

Section 263:64

263:64 Driving After Revocation or Suspension. –     I. No person shall drive a motor vehicle in this state while the person’s driver’s license or privilege to drive is suspended or revoked by action of the director or the justice of any court in this state, or competent authority in the out-of-state jurisdiction where the license was issued.     II. A person who drives a motor vehicle in this state while such person’s license or driving privilege is suspended or revoked shall be guilty of violating this section regardless of whether such person has a license on the effective date of such suspension or revocation. Evidence that the notice of suspension or revocation was sent to the person’s last known address as shown on the records of the division shall be prima facie evidence that the person was notified of the suspension or revocation.     III. A person who obtains or possesses an out-of-state license after such person’s New Hampshire license or driving privilege has been revoked does not revive his or her driving privilege by having such out-of-state license, and such person shall be guilty of violating this section if he or she drives in the state while his or her New Hampshire license or driving privilege is suspended or revoked.     IV. Any person who violates this section by driving or attempting to drive a motor vehicle or by operating or attempting to operate an OHRV or snowmobile in this state during the period of suspension or revocation of his or her license or driving privilege for a violation of RSA 265:79 or an equivalent offense in another jurisdiction shall be guilty of a misdemeanor. Any person who violates this section by driving or attempting to drive a motor vehicle or by operating or attempting to operate an OHRV or snowmobile in this state during the period of suspension or revocation of his or her license or driving privilege for a violation of RSA 265-A:2, I, RSA 265-A:3, RSA 630:3, II, RSA 265:82, or RSA 265:82-a or an equivalent offense in another jurisdiction shall be guilty of a misdemeanor and shall be sentenced to imprisonment for a period not less than 7 consecutive 24-hour periods to be served within 6 months of the conviction, shall be fined not more than $1,000, and shall have his or her license or privilege revoked for an additional year. No portion of the minimum mandatory sentence of imprisonment shall be suspended by the court. No case brought to enforce this paragraph shall be continued for sentencing for longer than 35 days. No person serving the minimum mandatory sentence under this paragraph shall be discharged pursuant to authority granted under RSA 651:18, released pursuant to authority granted under RSA 651:19, or in any manner, except as provided in RSA 623:1, prevented from serving the full amount of such minimum mandatory sentence under any authority granted by title LXII or any other provision of law.     V. Notwithstanding the definition of “revocation” in RSA 259:90 and the definition of “suspension” in RSA 259:107, the phrase “period of suspension or revocation” as used in paragraph IV and for purposes of paragraph IV only shall mean only suspension or revocation imposed by a court of competent jurisdiction. “Period of suspension or revocation” shall include the period specifically designated and until the restoration of the person’s driver’s license or privilege to drive.     V-a. (a) Except as provided in subparagraph (b), any person who drives a motor vehicle in this state during the period of suspension or revocation of his or her license or driving privilege and is involved in a collision resulting in death or serious bodily injury, as defined in RSA 625:11, VI, to any person, shall be guilty of a class B felony, where such person’s unlawful operation of the motor vehicle caused or materially contributed to the collision. Evidence that the driver violated any of the rules of the road shall be prima facie evidence that the driver caused or materially contributed to the collision.        (b) A person violating this section whose license or driving privilege has been suspended pursuant to the provisions of RSA 263:14 only shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.     VI. Any person who violates the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a misdemeanor upon conviction based upon a complaint which alleged that the person has had one or more prior convictions for driving after revocation or suspension in this state within the 7 years preceding the date of the second or subsequent offense.     VII. Except as provided in paragraphs IV, V-a, and VI, any person who violates the provisions of this section shall be guilty of a violation, and shall be fined a minimum of $250 for a first offense and $500 for a second or subsequent offense.
