my boyfriend has been violating probation and he said his probation officer doesnt care that he smokes but im afriad of him getting caught driving with a dui and being high
Hello. A DWI charge in New Hampshire, even a first offense, is a criminal charge that usually causes a probation violation proceeding to begin. As you may be aware, simple possession of small amounts of marijuana as a first offense will soon (58 days from today!) be decriminalized. This will not, however, prevent police from charging drivers with DWI for being under the influence of anything. It remains to be seen how "creative" the police will be about these types of alleged driving offenses in two months.See question

Hello. The law in New Hampshire regarding "False Report to Law Enforcement" is New Hampshire RSA 641:4 . To obtain a conviction, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt all of the elements of that crime. That law applies to some one who : "Knowingly gives or causes to be given false information to any law enforcement officer with the purpose of inducing such officer to believe that another has committed an offense." False Report is a misdemeanor. You should consult a New Hampshire criminal defense attorney as soon as possible.See question
I was at a house party drinking and the police came and I blew a .05 .01 over the league limit for an under 21 person. They have me a summons for internal possession.
Hello. If you are convicted under New Hampshire law for "Minor in Possession of Alcohol" or "Underage Intoxication" under RSA 179:10 you may be looking at a 90 day license loss, from either the court to which you were summonsed or by the NH DMV. The law provides for up to a year license loss, but more than a 90 day suspension is unlikely given your clean record. There are potential defenses to these charges that you may want to discuss with a New Hampshire criminal defense attorney, most of whom give a free consultation.See question

There are a couple of reasons why the District Court may not have case information on her. Procedurally, the answer to this varies by county in New Hampshire. New Hampshire courts are in the process of a program called "Felonies First". In counties in which this program has already been implemented, her case may begin directly in the Superior Court. You might want to check with the Superior Court in the county she was arrested in to see if they have a scheduled first appearance date for her.See question

If you missed a hearing scheduled to determine whether an ignition interlock should be placed in your vehicle, the Bureau of Hearings will likely issue an order that you are required to have an ignition interlock installed for 2 years after your right to drive has been restored.See question

I was certified habitual offender and was caught driving and convicted after certification. I have to do jail time but need to know how long my license will be suspended by the state of new hampsire after my conviction.
Evidence of driving, such as the operating after habitual offender certification, will likely slow down your eventual decertification process. Also something to be aware of is that the Bureau of Hearings will not count any actual committed incarceration time as part of the time suspended for purposes of the decertification process.See question
I was pulled over for seemingly no reason, and when I asked the officer why he pulled me over, he said "I suspected your license was suspended." He was right, but at the time I didn't even know it was, so it was surprising that he suspected that....
If the cop ran your plate, and the registered owner of the vehicle came back as suspended when he ran it, and the registered owner fit your general description (age, gender etc) then he probably had probable cause to stop you. Convicting you of operating after suspension is another matter, as the prosecution must prove that you knew you were suspended.See question
