    You'll know if you've been charged with something if/when you receive a citation or a summons in the mail. It will be sent to the address known to the police. Presumably the police would have obtained your address from your license, if they found it on you. However, based on what you wrote, it seems unlikely that you will receive any sort of citation. I suppose it's possible that they could send you a citation for Disorderly Conduct or Disturbing the Peace - even then, it would be a thin...

    You may apply for a "hardship license" during the 45-day suspension period. However; as you already know, the IID must be installed before the RMV will reinstate your license. The $500 reinstatement fee applies. The IID must be installed in any vehicle you "own, lease, or operate," and it must remain in your car for the suspension period PLUS 2 years afterward. To obtain a hardship you must show the RMV proof that you enrolled in the 24D Alcohol Education Program and a letter from your...

    Massachusetts will consider this to be a moving violation. Presumably, NH will report this moving violation to the Massachusetts RMV. It will affect your driver's license in that it will be considered a "minor moving violation" and a "surchargeable event." If you accrue 12 moving violations in a 5 year period your license will be suspended as a Habitual Traffic Offender (HTO). If you accrue 3 surchargeable events in a 2 year period, you will be required to take a safe driver course.

    Attorney Donovan is correct. The RMV will add 5 points to your license under its Safe Driver Insurance Program (SDIP). This will happen if your case was CWOF or Guilty. If you wait until your probationary period is over - presumably it is one-year long - the case will be dismissed, but the Insurance companies will still be able to see it on your RMV record. In addition, the CWOF is considered a Major Moving Violation and a Surchargeable Event. If you accrue 3 Major Moving Violations in 5...

    No, you cannot get a court-appointed attorney to represent you at at Magistrate's Hearing. You must hire one. A Magistrate's hearing is conducted by a Magistrate of that particular court. The Magistrate is an unbiased (at least they're supposed to be unbiased) 3rd party. The purpose of a Magistrate's hearing (also known as a Clerk's hearing or a Show-Cause hearing) is to determine if there is enough evidence to charge you with the crime. The standard of proof is "probable cause."...

    You will have no luck in Massachusetts. Before issuing a new resident a Driver's License, the Mass. Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) will run a out-of-state license check on you. If your license is suspended in any other state - PA included - you will not be able to obtain a driver's license in Mass.

    Sign the back of the citation, under section A, and file it in the clerk's office of the appropriate district court. You must do this within 20 days. This will guarantee a hearing in front of a Clerk-Magistrate. The fee is $25. Next, If you lose the hearing you may appeal the Clerk's decision to a judge.
