DUI/DWI in New Hampshire
In New Hampshire, the acronyms DUI and DWI are often used interchangeably, but they both refer to the same offense – driving while impaired. An individual can be charged with DUI/DWI in New Hampshire if they operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08% or higher, or if their ability to drive is impaired due to alcohol or drugs.
It is also important to note that even if an individual’s BAC is below 0.08%, they can still be charged if the arresting officer believes that their driving was impaired. Additionally, an individual can be charged with DUI/DWI if they were operating a motor vehicle while impaired by illegal drugs, prescription medications, or even over-the-counter medications.
The Penalties for a DUI/DWI Conviction in New Hampshire
Individuals convicted of a DUI/DWI offense in New Hampshire face severe penalties. These penalties can include fines, license suspension, mandatory alcohol education programs, probation, and even jail time. Furthermore, the penalties become more severe if the individual convicted of a DUI/DWI offense is a repeat offender. It is therefore crucial to consult with an experienced DUI/DWI defense attorney who can analyze the specific circumstances of your case and build a robust defense strategy to minimize the potential consequences.
