Product Description

Designed specifically for lawyers who defend and prosecute drunk driving cases in New Hampshire, this manual is a first for the Granite State. Editor Mark Stevens of Salem, NH has assembled a winning cadre of DWI experts to join him in developing this must-have resource, which offers practical, seasoned guidance backed by case law and statutory authorities. A Practical Guide to Trying DWI Cases in New Hampshire is the first book for criminal law practitioners in the growing MCLE | New England collection.

This DWI handbook for New Hampshire lawyers shows you how to:

- handle the special discovery needs that arise in DWI cases involving roadblocks;

- draft pretrial motions for cases involving stops that originate from anonymous (and not so anonymous) tips;

- approach the proof system and the definition of "one drink" when tackling breath test challenges;

- differentiate the absorptive from post-absorptive phases regarding blood alcohol levels;

- avoid the potential for mistrial when conducting a direct examination of the arresting officer;

- spot reversible error in the prosecution's opening statement;

- make demonstrative evidence, like cruiser videotapes and recording of the booking, work for your case;

- get a witness impeached based on evidence of prior conviction;

- avoid collateral consequences-including immigration and employment complications-of charges and convictions;

- resolve discovery issues in administrative license suspension hearings.

Featured are sample letters to police departments and the Bureau of Hearings, model motions and other pleadings, checklists, current and pertinent statutory law, and other key resources that give you the edge in your courtroom work and pretrial work. This book is unique in that it brings together some of New Hampshire's most knowledgeable DWI defense counsel with prosecutors and police department lawyers. A Practical Guide to Trying DWI Cases in New Hampshire is your most trusted source for prosecuting or defending a DWI in the Granite State.

New Hampshire counsel-both prosecutors and defense attorneys-need New Hampshire case authority, statutory law, and local wisdom on how to win at trial in Granite State courts. This practice manual has it all, in one convenient, authoritative, and comprehensive source.
