Plea to Non-aggravated First Offense DWI Negotiated — Absolute Minimum Sentence Under Law

Nashua Police charge Client in the Nashua Circuit Court with Aggravated DWI, based on a .22 blood alcohol concentration (the threshold for Aggravated DWI is .16 BAC or higher), and the State files for a 180 day ALS suspension, because the .22 is far over the legal limit of .08. Client hires Attorney Lothstein, who negotiates a plea to non-aggravated first offense DWI, with the absolute minimum sentence under law – Client may restore license in 90 days – and the State will withdraw the 180 day ALS suspension. This plea saves client from mandatory jail time and a mandatory one year loss of license, both required for Aggravated DWI.
