Client charged with DWI in Plymouth. Attorney Lothstein’s advocacy wins a plea to reckless driving, saving client from having a criminal record, saving client from having a DWI on his record for 10 years, and reducing the license suspension by 4 months.
Our client was charged with Attempted Sale of Narcotic Drugs, a class B felony, based on an undercover investigation by the NH State Police. An affidavit filed with the Court alleged that client had agreed to sell narcotic drugs to an undercover informant supervised by the Drug Task Force, took the money for the drugs, but then fled and never supplied the drugs.
Client retained Ted Lothstein of Lothstein Guerriero, PLLC. After negotiation, we were able to secure a plea to a misdemeanor theft, with a jail sentence that was fully suspended, conditioned on payment of $500 restitution to the NH Drug Task Force. In March, 2016, Judge Tucker of the Merrimack County Superior Court accepted the plea agreement. For client, this meant no felony conviction, no jail time, no probation. A very good outcome!
Lebanon Police charge Client with Driving While Intoxicated in the 2d Circuit – District Division – Lebanon Court. Client hires Attorney Lothstein, who secures a plea to Reckless Operation, AND an agreement that Client will only have to serve 4 months of the 6 month ALS suspension (for blowing a breath test over .08). This plea means no criminal record for client, no DWI conviction, no IDCMP, and significantly shortens the statutorily-required license suspension as well!
