Manchester Woman Seeks Governor’s Pardon for Multiple New Hampshire DWI Convictions

A woman from Manchester recently spoke before New Hampshire Governor John Lynch and the Executive Council asking them to give her a partial pardon for her multiple DWI convictions in New Hampshire, reports WMUR.

The woman was recently convicted of her fifth offense of driving while intoxicated (DWI), and asked the governor to grant a pardon to reduce her punishment. Specifically, she sought a chance to get her driver’s license back so that she can continue to work.

Under state law, once a person is convicted of a fourth DWI in New Hampshire, they cannot petition the Division of Motor Vehicles to restore their driving privileges for at least seven years. In this specific case, the woman seeking a pardon cannot petition the DMV until September 2012. The restriction has made it almost impossible for her to keep her job as a clinical supervisor at The Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth Hitchcock, which now requires her to travel around the state.

The woman informed the Executive Council that she is fully committed to remaining sober and that she did not consider her punishment unfair. She said she was merely seeking to keep her livelihood. The Executive Council adjourned without releasing a decision.

A governor’s pardon is a last-ditch attempt to seek relief from the severity of conviction of a New Hampshire DUI or DWI.
