New Hampshire Judge Denies Man Bail After DUI Arrest

A New Hampshire judge denied bail and decided to keep a 55-year-old Eaton Center resident in jail after the man was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving recently. The judge relied on the man’s multiple prior drunk driving convictions to make his decision, saying that he believed the man was a danger to the public, according to a recent article in The Sun-Chronicle.

The man was pulled over on Interstate 95 in Attleboro, NH, after another driver called police, reporting that the man’s driving was unsteady. The arresting officer who pulled the man over stated that the man appeared to be intoxicated and that the man had gotten angry when he was arrested. According to the man’s attorney, however, he was upset over the New Hampshire DUI arrest, not because he was intoxicated.

The man’s six DUI convictions dating back as far as 1976, with most of them occurring before 1986. His attorney pointed out that there were reasonable alternatives to jail that would allow the man to continue working and taking care of his household. Nevertheless, the judge agreed with the prosecutor’s office that the man represented a threat to public safety and ordered him to remain in jail.
