Franklin District Court Case Victories
Ted Lothstein has litigated many cases in the 6th Circuit – Franklin District Court. Here are just a few examples:
In Franklin District Court, Client, representing himself, attempted to plead no contest to aggravated DWI (based on a BAC, or breath alcohol concentration, of 0.19). When the judge told him about the mandatory jail time, however, he withdrew his plea and retained Ted Lothstein, a DUI lawyer in NH. By the time of trial, the State agreed to drop the aggravated DWI charge and allow Client to plead guilty to a lesser charge, DWI-first offense. This enabled Client to avoid mandatory jail time, a much longer license suspension, and the ignition interlock program! Read More
Franklin, NH Police arrested Client for DWI – with a .29 blood alcohol concentration (almost double the Aggravated limit and nearly four times the legal limit of .08). Nevertheless, Attorney Lothstein secured plea bargain in Franklin District Court where client pled guilty to DWI first offense. This prevented a conviction for Aggravated DWI and saved client from mandatory jail time and mandatory one year ignition interlock. Read More
