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.

 

 

Busted for Shoplifting in New Hampshire? Call Mark Stevens 603-893-0074 (24/7)

New Hampshire Shoplifting Laws. It is “Black Friday” starting at midnight tonight. Stores are open earlier and longer in New Hampshire. This weekend also 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. New Hampshire shoplifting laws are tough. If you get accused of any type of theft or shoplifting offense call me today for a free consultation or click here to schedule your consultation online. My number is 1-603-893-0074.

Each year Black Friday gets bigger than the year before with stores trying to outdo one another, offering the biggest and the best, cheaper than their competitors.  No matter how popular Black Friday increasingly becomes or how much Cyber Monday tries to steal its’ spotlight offering those less inclined to pepper spray their way to the biggest TV an online version the following Monday.  Does it really matter who stampedes their way to the front of the line for the biggest, best, cheapest?  Not if you’ve just been arrested for shoplifting or accused of “willful concealment” in New Hampshire.

It is important that if you get accused of shoplifting and you are brought into a loss prevention or store security office that you do not say anything or sign anything. Don’t let them bully you into signing anything. 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.

The store security or loss prevention people will call the cops if they suspect you of shoplifting. When the cops come to arrest you be polite and don’t resist, but don’t admit anything either. Do not let the store security people take your picture: they’re not cops and they can’t make you do anything.

When the cops arrive make sure you are respectful and do not resist arrest. Be polite, go with the cops quietly. Make sure you have some bail money with you. Don’t make any statements! Remember, call me right away after you get released: 1-603-893-0074

Happy Thanksgiving! Happy Black Friday. If you do get busted this weekend though call me right away at 1-603-893-0074. I look forward to speaking with you!

Please have a safe and pepper-spray free Black Friday this year! Happy Shopping!

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.

NH LAW OF THE DAY: Reckless Driving

 LAW OF THE DAY: Reckless Driving 

Here’s the law on “Reckless Driving” in New Hampshire:

TITLE XXI  Motor Vehicles
CHAPTER 265  Rules of the Road – Serious Traffic Offenses
RSA 265:79  (2012)

265:79  Reckless Driving; Minimum Penalty.

Whoever upon any way drives a vehicle recklessly, or causes a vehicle to be driven recklessly, as defined in RSA 626:2, II(c)*, or so that the lives or safety of the public shall be endangered, or upon a bet, wager, or race, or who drives a vehicle for the purpose of making a record, and thereby violates any of the provisions of this title or any rules adopted by the director, shall be, notwithstanding the provisions of title LXII, guilty of a violation and fined not less than $500 for the first offense and $750 for the second offense nor more than $1,000 and his or her license shall be revoked for a period of 60 days for the first offense and from 60 days to one year for the second offense.

* RSA 626:2 II (c) General Requirements of Culpability: “Recklessly” is denied as follows:

“Recklessly”.  A person acts recklessly with respect to a material element of an offense when he is aware of and consciously disregards a substantial and unjustifiable risk that the material element exists or will result from his conduct.  The risk must be of such a nature and degree that considering the circumstances known to him, its disregard constitutes a gross deviation from the conduct that a law-abiding person would observe in such a situation.  A person who creates such a risk but is unaware thereof solely by reason of having voluntarily engaged in intoxication or hypnosis also acts recklessly with regard thereto.
