    Charles’s Answer

    Due to the amount of merchandise involved, you will likely be charged with a class A felony theft. There is possibility of jail time in light of this. If you have further questions, I practice here in NH and my email is keefe@wbdklaw.com.

    But i'm 90% sure i wasn't driving. However, i have no proof, and have no idea what I said to the cops that night. Am i better off pleading guilty and losing my license? Both of my parents are on disability, is there any way I can pay the fine and ...

    Here in NH, you cannot plead guilty to a DWI and not lose your license. If you decided to plead guilty, you would lose your license from 90 days to 6 months. Also, if you are convicted of DWI, you will have to take the Impaired Driver's Intervention Course (and will likely need after-care due to the breath result). You will also be required to obtain an SR-22 (a rider on your insurance) that will cost you greatly. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss this further. keefe@wbdklaw.com

  • What would the charge be for theft of $2000 cash (ballpark)?

    a person is accused of stealing around $2000 from their previous employer over an extended amount of time. This is a rolling cash over type of situation. what would the charge for this be in the state of NH and would it be a felony or misdemeanor?...

    Charles’s Answer

    This charge would likely be a felony-level charge of Theft by Unauthorized Taking or Theft by Deception. A felony theft involves any amount greater than $500.00. This would be a class A felony as it is greater than $1,000.00. If the person has no prior criminal record, there is a strong chance that the result of the case would not end up in jail time. Please feel free to contact me directly if you would like to discuss this further, keefe@wbdklaw.com

  • I was a school bus driver for 6 yrs and got arrested. got a cwof. dismissed in 6 mths can i go back to school bus driving.

    I have seen regular people ask about regular jobs. but i know stuff shows up on the cori. will this affect me on reinstating.I can drive in either nh or massachusetts

    Charles’s Answer

    If you got a CWOF on a DWI charge in MA, it may be complicated to get your bus license reinstated. However, if this happened in NH (or if it's for a non-felony, non-driving charge), you shouldn't have much of a problem. Also, if this happened in H and the case was dismissed, you should seek to annul the record of your arrest.
