In 2014 I accepted a plea for a DWI first offense. The circumstances are as follows: I was found in a parked car in the winter with the engine running, having taken pills and alcohol as part of a suicide attempt. I used my car in order to avoid doing it at the house. The car was carefully prepared to minimize mess for first responders, and there was never any evidence that I moved the car while intoxicated (and I didn't). I used alcohol to accelerate the pills as recommended in a suicide manual, "Final Exit". The suicide attempt occurred after years of severe mental and emotional abuse. I chose a remote area so children wouldn't find the body. Due to the spike in alcohol level from the suicide method, my BAC was measured at .18. I was in intensive care for a while. (continued below)
A reduction to a violation is allowed if all of the procedures that were required of you in the plea are adhered to....
I was arrested with DUI charges. First offense, no criminal or driving records whatsoever. Took the breathalyzer test with .14
Do I have any chances of not losing my license? I am willing to do screening and any required classes.
You very well could your license for a period of time. DUI is nearly a specialized section of law in and of itself....
I had a dui in 2007 in NH and a second one in the beggining of 2014 in California while still holding a NH license. My lawyer in CA told me i will not be getting jail time and i can get my dui class done here. Now my question is, should i expect more punishments from NH besides license suspension? I ask because i dont know how NH handles out state cases.
You will not receive any further punishment from NH. Assuming you completed all the requirements of your sentence from...
I have a possible warrant from the state of Massachusetts and I just moved to NH. Will it affect me getting employed?
I failed to appear to a court hearing in Mass, I had to leave to attend a family emergency then I had to move to NH. I tried notifying the court about the situation but they were not helping with the situation. I just got hired and they are doing a background check, will it affect my employment? Also the hearing was for a motor vehicle violation. I just needed to pay a fine. If I go to the court to pay it will they arrest me?
I need more information to help you. What type motor vehicle violation was it? Was your appearance required or were...
it was roughly 130am. I was not speeding. I swerved a bit trying to text my wife. the trooper started tailgating me after for about 2 miles. I was unaware he was a trooper and made a quick lane change, signal and all to get out of his path. he acknowledged seeing text blaring on my phone from my wife. I think I did good on sobriety test. I did take a roadside BA came in at 1.01. back at station I refused the test. I have a great driving record. I understand the roadside BA test is not accurate. so he could agree my swerving may have been from texting not alcohol. if sobriety test were good, this leaves no concrete evidence since I did not take test at station, as long as roadside test is not admissable.
All he has to prove is that you were operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and that you were...
I got a DUI first offense in NH in 2010, it was reduced to a violation. Do I still need to tick yes in a crime disclosure form?
The conviction was for a class B misdemeanor (first offense) in NH in 2010, I'm a NH resident looking for employment; if my DWI conviction has been reduced to a non-criminal violation, do I still need to answer yes in an employment disclosure form when it asks whether I've been convicted of a crime?
You will need to read the wording of the question very carefully. If the DWI conviction was in fact reduced to a non-...
I am a NH resident who possessed a NH license when I was stopped and eventually convicted of a DWI in NH. I have served my sentence, and the 90 suspension is up tomorrow. Today I learned that MA has suspended my license ( I was a resident 20 years ago) based on this DWI. When I moved to NH, I turned in my MA license to obtain an NH one. NH informed me that they mail the old licenses back to MA. I would think that would be a great indicator that I am no longer a residence of MA. The problem is that MA suspended my license based on my DWI. NH will not issue me a new license until I straighten out my issue with the MA who have suspended based on NH information. I am informed that I have to provide my driving history, judges disposition to a MA hearing officer, but I am not a MA resident.
This type of problem is becoming more and more frequent. You need to contact MA, indicate you're no longer a MA...
