I was intoxicated and was arguing with husband. I pointed gun at my head. Husband retrieved gun. 911 called. First I was taken into protective custody. Then I was arrested, never read my rights, jailed for 15+ hours. Asked for lawyer after 5 hours...
You should retain an experienced NH criminal defense attorney to represent you in your case. The police do not need to read your Miranda rights to you unless you are subject to custodial interrogation. The police also do not have to contact your husband regarding the arrest and do not necessarily have to provide an attorney for you prior to your release. A no contact order is not unusual for someone arrested in a case like yours but you should speak with an attorney regarding that issue.See question

After 25+ years, NH still has this requirement as pending. I would like a sample motion to ask the NH District court to remove the IDEP requirement since I have not drank in over 10 years. Thanks for any help.
You need to hire an attorney to assist you with this issue. There are no sample motions that you can find to ask the court for this relief. Additionally, you most likely will not be able to get this requirement removed absent approval from the department of safety. The IDEP formerly IDIP is a statutory requirement that you should have completed 25 years ago.See question
I got arrested for not having my lights on and they found weed in my car .. I'm 17 years old ... Will they suspend my license after I go to court or would I get a notice from the state before my court date ?
If you are 17 in NH, you are an adult for criminal law purposes. If you are convicted for possession of a controlled drug, you are facing a minimum fine of $350 plus $84 penalty assessment as well as a minimum suspension of your license for 90 days. The DMV can also suspend your license. You would not get a notice prior to a conviction. I suggest that you contact a NH criminal defense attorney to represent you in your case.See question
My son was arrested for 1 gram of marijuana possession in New Hampshire which is still considered a misdemeanor in that state. He feels he can represent himself in court and hopes to get off with a fine and community service. I do not want this ...
I highly recommend hiring an attorney to represent your son in court for this case. Your son is facing up to a year in jail and or $1,000 fine plus a 90 day loss of license if he is under 21 years of age. Many young people receive a lot of misinformation and or urban legends about how the court process works.See question
got pulled over for suspended lic. and revoked plates. never got notifacation of this due to a move. but nothing was forwarded to my new address.
In NH, you are required to notify the DMV of any address changes. You cannot simply notify the post office of your address change or forward your mail.
The police do not have to read your Miranda rights to you when you are arrested. The police only have to read your Miranda rights to you if you are subject to custodial interrogation.
In NH, under RSA 263:64, if the DMV records indicate that the notice of suspension was sent to the address listed at DMV and the mail was not returned, it is presumed that you received the notice. The prosecution does not have to prove that you knowingly drove while suspended since the offenses is a violation. You should hire an experienced NH criminal defense attorney to represent you in your case.See question
of shopping malls, IF I was told to leave by security and I refuse, will they forcefully and physcially detain me till the police come?
If you refuse to leave, the security will most likely simply call the police and detain you until the police arrive. If you are suspected of shoplifting, they can detain you until the police arrive as well. If you are told to leave the mall, you should just leave immediately.See question
for example if the initial charge was running a stop sign but you can prove you didnt, then were charched with dui as aresult of the stop
In NH, if a judge suppresses the stop of the motor vehicle, generally any and all evidence obtained by the police officer is also suppressed. The Defendant can then move to dismiss the complaint for DWI.
The court's order granting suppression would not be relevant in the Administrative License Suspension hearing at the Bureau of Hearings regarding any violations of the implied consent law (refusing the post-arrest breath or blood test or having a test 0.08 over more).

Generally, in NH, if a person is arrested and later convicted of a criminal offense, it is a public record. However, if the person convicted was able to get the conviction annulled (or erased), then the conviction is no longer public record.See question
Ok so I hit my girlfriend with a pillow and pushed her on the couch. Three counts of simple assault, misdemeanor A. He questioned me before he cuffed me. Took me to the station then read my Miranda rights. Well she's been non stop texting me how s...
In New Hampshire, Simple Assault is a Class A Misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of 12 months in jail and or a $1,000 fine plus 24% penalty assessment. Do not admit to any crimes on the internet particularly this website. If your girlfriend is texting you and writing you letters, do not respond if your bail conditions include a "no contact" order. If you respond to her or speak with her, you could face additional charges and or the State could motion the court to revoke your bail.
With regards to your Miranda question, the police officer does not have to read your Miranda rights to you unless you are subject to custodial interrogation. You need to retain an experienced NH criminal defense attorney to represent you in your case.See question
