New Hampshire DWI Second Offense Lawyers
NH DWI Second Offense – A DWI/DUI conviction stays on your record and puts you at risk for a second offense charge for 10 years. DWI second is a class A misdemeanor, meaning it’s a criminal charge with mandatory jail time. If the second offense occurs within two years of the first offense, it’s a mandatory 30 days in jail. If it occurs after 2 years but before 10 years have passed, minimum mandatory jail time is 5 days. The administrative license suspension on a second offense DUI/DWI is 2 years, and the court ordered suspension is a minimum of 3 years. If the driver refused the breath or blood test requested by the officer, the combined loss of license the driver faces is 5 years.
Our NH DWI lawyers develop strategies to protect you from these harsh penalties by preparing your DUI/DWI case for trial from day one. Not every case goes to trial, but we prepare every time.
