Legal Answers
37 Questions Answered
Q. Need to know what happened with my cases after I failed to appear in court. More details below.
A: You will need to vacate the default and get put back on the trial list. The prosecutor will normally agree to this. Then we would proceed by getting discovery and analyzing your case. Sometimes older cases raise problems for the state as witnesses (police) may have retired and moved away. At a minimum memories fade over time. It is probably best to hire an attorney who has experience in handling these cases and helping you vacate the default/ warrant.
Q. I was charged with a simple domestic assault charge a couple months ago, and just got caught attempting to steal food
A: There is always a chance. Your best bet is to contact a competent defense lawyer in your area. If you qualify for a public defender request an attorney. Do not try to handle this on your own. A suspended sentence is not imposed until a final order from a court. Do not discuss case with anyone other than a defense attorney. You should contact the lawyer that helped with the suspended sentence.
Q. if i have an intoxalock in my vehicle, am i allowed to drive work vehicles if they have samsara camera units in them?
A: If you are required to have an interlock device installed then it must be there or you can be charged with 265-A:37 Alcohol Ignition Interlock Circumvention. – I. Any person required by the court or by the commissioner of safety after a hearing pursuant to RSA 265-A:36-a to install an ignition interlock device shall not drive any motor vehicle not equipped with this device. A conviction for the above woudl result in: a class A misdemeanor, be fined not less than $500, and if he or she is the person subject to the interlock order, be ordered to install an enhanced technology ignition interlock device, and have the period of required ignition interlock device installation extended for 2 years.
