Everyone wants to avoid criminal punishment and stay on the right side of the law. One thing that can make it difficult to comply with state laws is the fact that they change frequently. Several new laws in New Hampshire exist as of the beginning of 2019.
While you might be tempted think about drunk driving as being related only to alcohol, this isn't at all the case.

It is imperative that you take the time to find out how anything you use or ingest is going to affect your abilities before you get behind the wheel.
Drug charges, including those for selling, can have negative impacts on your life. It is imperative that you take the time to learn about the options that you have when you are facing them.

Domestic violence is a serious act of violence against a family member or someone who lives in the same household as you. While it is possible that these charges are based on the wrong perception of a situation, you should still be prepared to present a defense against the claims of the prosecutor.

Probation and parole are alternatives to incarceration, but they aren't by any means free passes that don't involve punishment of any sort. For the people who are on the programs, there are lots of rules that have to be followed. Any deviation from these rules can result in further legal issues that can land them back in jail.
Every state, including New Hampshire, has an implied consent law. You agree to abide by this law as soon as you apply for a driver’s license.
