multiple dui conviction rockingham county attorney
Life gets very complicated if you are convicted on a 2nd DUI charge or 3d DWI in New Hampshire.
While a first offense is only a Class B Misdemeanor, a 2nd DUI charge is a Class A Misdemeanor. You also face these criminal penalties:
The Department of Motor Vehicles will fine you and suspend your license upon a second offense as follows:
The Multiple Offender Program (MOP) at the DWI Offender Intervention Detention Centercosts approximately $1,500. Enhanced penalties may be imposed if a minor was in the vehicle, you were speeding or driving recklessly, an accident resulted with personal injury or property damage, or you had a very high BAC.
Desfosses Law Firm is committed to minimizing the charge and potential penalties our clients face. You are well-advised to deal effectively with your 2d or greater DUI charge because the charges next time would be even worse. We may be able to challenge the prior charge or conviction so that this is not considered a 2d charge. We attempt to negotiate a reduced charge, but will go to trial if that is the in the best interest of our client.
