Attorney Welsh saves client significant incarceration and license loss
District Court Trial. Attorney Welsh defended a client accused of DUI, second offense. Client was accused of DUI here in New Hampshire with a prior DUI conviction just three months earlier in the State of Kentucky. Conviction on such a charge mandates significant incarceration and enhanced license loss.
The prosecutor obtained all the proper documentation from the court in Kentucky showing that indeed Attorney Welsh’s client pleaded guilty to DUI down there. Attorney Welsh nevertheless objected to introduction of the prior conviction. Result: Client’s prior conviction was not introduced into evidence, thereby saving client significant incarceration and enhanced license loss.
