In Claremont District Court, Client faced aggravated felony DWI charge. This arose out of motor vehicle accident that caused passenger to suffer a compound fracture of a bone in his arm. Despite incriminating blood alcohol tests, Attorney Lothstein, a DUI lawyer in NH, secured dismissal of felony DWI charge in a negotiated plea that allowed Client to plead guilty to a first offense low level misdemeanor DWI with a six month loss of license. This saved Client from mandatory jail time, mandatory 7 day treatment program, mandatory minimum one year license revocation, and mandatory ignition interlock requirement.
Littleton District Court. Client faced a charge of class A misdemeanor Sexual Assault. If convicted, he would have to register as a sex offender for 10 years and face other criminal penalties. Attorney Lothstein secured a plea to an alternative charge, Simple Assault, helping Client avoid mandatory sex offender registration.
Client was charged in Rockingham County Superior Court with negligent homicide (alcohol impairment) and negligent homicide (excessive speed) for a single-car accident in which she rolled over her Jeep on Route 101 while returning home from a nightclub in Manchester … a tragic accident that killed her passenger and best friend. Ted Lothstein, a DUI lawyer in NH, and co-counsel filed a motion to suppress blood test results that showed Client had an incriminating blood alcohol level, and a motion to suppress a horizontal gaze nystagmus test that the state trooper believed produced evidence of impairment. After hearings, the trial court granted both motions. After much of the evidence had been suppressed, the State agreed to drop the alcohol impairment indictment and the parties reached a negotiated settlement involving consequences far less than the typical outcome of a DWI-fatality case in this State.
