Transporting Alcohol in New Hampshire

NH Alcohol Transportation Defense Lawyers

New Hampshire law (RSA 265-A:44) prevents any driver from transporting alcohol in the passenger area of a motor vehicle except in the original container with the seal unbroken. A driver convicted of transporting alcohol in NH faces a minimum $150 fine, up to a $1,000 fine. On top of the statutory fine, a license loss of 60 days may be imposed for the first offense and up to 1 year for a second or subsequent offense of transporting alcohol in NH.

Our criminal defense lawyers have represented many individuals charged with transporting alcohol. In a recent case involving a Massachusetts resident with two prior DWI convictions, attorney John Tenn helped defend his client against a third DWI charge, and a transportation of alcohol charge. Our client refused to submit to field sobriety tests or an Intoxilyzer Test and was subsequently arrested. Attorney Tenn argued that there was insufficient probable cause for the arrest. Ultimately, the DWI charge and the transporting alcohol charge were dismissed and the client was not convicted.

If you are facing charges for transporting alcohol in NH, it is vital to speak with a NH criminal defense lawyer right away who can review your alcohol related offense.
