In NH, you can file a petition to annul the record of your arrest and conviction for the offense provided that you have completed all of the terms of your sentence (paid fines, etc.) and not committed any new offenses other than minor motor vehicle violations (such as speeding) since that time. In NH, you are an adult at 17 so this is on your adult criminal record.
However, as of January 1, 2013, once the petition to annul is granted, the conviction will not be erased from your NH criminal...

I agree with the answer provided by Attorney Anzalone. I would also like to point out that "wet reckless" does not and has never existed in New Hampshire. You are either charged with DWI/DUI or Reckless Operation. "Wet Reckless" is simply an urban legend that does not exist in NH.

You should contact the local prosecutor or County Attorney's Office or court where the case is being heard in order to find out what the specific charges are and whether or not any of the charges are felonies and or misdemeanors.
