If you've been charged with a crime, a New Hampshire criminal lawyer can be an invaluable ally -- standing by your side throughout the entirety of your trial and doing everything in his or her power to pursue justice on your behalf.
Cameron Dearborn, a 19-year-old man from Danville, New Hampshire, was sentenced to five to 10 years in prison on Friday, June 7, following a fatal car accident that left his friend, 17-year-old Korey Traficante, dead. The Union Leader, a regional news outlet, reports that Dearborn was drunk when the incident occurred on the evening of November 20, 2010.
"They both got into that car and acted as 17-year-olds would act," said Dearborn's New Hampshire criminal lawyer. "They weren't worried about the consequences or the future."
When Dearborn testified in court, he claimed to have no memory of the crash, and prosecutors tried to convince the jury that he wasn't accepting responsibility for his actions and didn't show any remorse for what he had done.
"This whole thing is a bad nightmare. I think about him all the time," Dearborn told the judge, according to The Eagle Tribune, noting that he has even received death threats as a result of what happened. "I have emotional scars -- images that won't go away. It was a stupid decision to make."
