DWI Dismissed. Client Receives Minimal Loss of License.
District Court, Rockingham County. Richard Samdperil represented a client charged with DWI for driving under the influence of drugs (prescribed medications). The State ultimately agreed to dismiss the DWI charge, a misdemeanor. In its place the parties agreed to a motor vehicle violation. The client was not convicted of a misdemeanor or DWI, and received only a 15 day loss of license rather than the 9 month loss required by the DWI statute.
