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...

RSA 628:2 states: A person who is insane at the time he acts is not criminally responsible for his conduct... i.e. there is no distinction for strict liability offenses; it applies to all allegedly criminal conduct by its plain language. For a person who allegedly did not move his vehicle while drunk but was found intoxicated (with alcohol being used as a delivery mechanism for pills) in his car with the motor running during a suicide attempt, then was committed in a state hospital and released after a diagnosis by a state psychiatrist of bipolar II disorder directly leading to the attempt, is the insanity defense applicable? I've found authority for DWI being a strict liability offense, but nothing to suggest the insanity defense is inapplicable to strict liability offenses. Thanks
Attorneys on here are not here to second guess an attorney who already knows all the facts, and should be presumed to...
