A drunk driving conviction can ruin a person's future

When a New Hampshire driver is arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, the steps he or she must take to defend the charges can determine the impact on his or her future. Having a criminal record can affect an individual's ability to secure a job, be approved for a rental apartment and more. The impact can be more severe if it is a second or subsequent drunk driving offense.

A 41-year-old woman will likely be aware of this after she was arrested for intoxicated driving for the second time. Reportedly, the woman was involved in a single-vehicle crash in Hudson on a recent Friday evening. A police report indicates that the woman allegedly lost control of her vehicle and broke a utility pole by smashing into it. After striking a tree, the car flipped over and landed in the roadway.

The report also shows that, although the driver was not strapped into the seat belt, the injuries she suffered were non-life-threatening. She was transported to the hospital for treatment before she was arrested. Authorities say that this was the driver's second arrest for intoxicated driving.

Any New Hampshire driver who faces drunk driving charges will likely want to explore their defense options. The most logical step might be to consult with an experienced DWI defense attorney. A lawyer can examine the charges and scrutinize the procedures law enforcement followed during the arrest. He or she can study the available evidence before devising a defense strategy to achieve the best possible outcome.
