I had been drinking at my house with my girlfriend who was over. She decided to leave around midnight while it was raining. I did not want her to walk alone through the streets while it was dark and raining so I jumped in the car to go pick her up. I pulled into a parking lot near where she was walking and jumped out of the car to go talk to her. I left the car running and while we were standing talking a cop pulled up. He asked what we were doing and I said I was picking up my girlfriend to bring her home. When asked if i had been drinking I said I had a few. Was given a field sobriety test and declined breathalyzer until getting to the station where I blew a .16. I have no other offenses except for a speeding ticket two and a half years ago and one this year. What should I be expectingI am 21 years old
My thought is that you need a lawyer and you need to be careful what you say in a public forum such as this.
NH DWI laws carry significant penalties. A breath result of .16g/210L is double to legal limit for anyone over the age of 21. I would encourage you to contact an experience DWI attorney to discuss the facts of your case in greater detail. Please be aware that there are strict time limits in DWI cases and you should not delay. For example: Failing to request and ALS hearing within 30 days of the date of your arrest will bar a future challenge to the Implied consent loss.
We offer free telephone consultations on DWI charges, as do other experienced DWI attorneys in NH. Please let us know if we can help.
