They also seek a 180-day administrative suspension because he refused a breath test. Client hires NH DWI defense attorney Ted Lothstein, and we secure a plea agreement where the State rescinds the administrative suspension (no 180 day suspension), AND the State drops the DWI charge. Client pleads guilty to Reckless Operation, with a 90-day license suspension, a fine, and a requirement that he obtain a LADAC evaluation.
United States District Court of NH. Attorney Lothstein wins release of Client, detained over six months in multi-defendant cross-border prosecution of Massachusetts and New Hampshire residents alleged to conspire to manufacture methamphetamine over a 3 year period.

Prosecution agreed to drop DWI charge and allow Client to plead guilty to reckless driving, 2d offense with a 6 month license loss. Although Client lost commercial driver’s license (CDL) administratively because of the breath test over legal limit, this plea likely saved his long-term career as a commercial vehicle operator.
