Black Friday Shopping Tips from NH DWI Lawyer Mark Stevens 603-893-0074 [24/7]

This upcoming holiday weekend always seems to result in more than usual shoplifting and willful concealment arrests as well as other theft charges all across New Hampshire. If you are accused of any type of theft or shoplifting offense it is extremely important you do not say anything or let anyone bully you into saying anything.pilgrim-with-guns

The shoplifting laws and theft penalties in New Hampshire are tough. If you are brought into loss prevention or a store security office remember you are not obligated to sign anything and do not let anyone pressure you into feeling you are. More than likely the main objective is to get you to make any type of admission they can.

DO NOT let store security take your picture, they are not the paparazzi and are definitely not the police. They cannot make you do anything. You do not even need to give store security, mall security, or loss protection your identification!!!

If you are suspected of shoplifting, either store/mall security or the loss preventions department will call the police. When the cops arrive make sure you are respectful and do not resist arrest OR admit to anything either! Be polite, do not make any statements, and make sure you have some bail money with you.

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!

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!

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.
