Ethics Committee Advisory Opinion #1984/5-14
March 12, 1985
The inquiring attorney appeared on behalf of an accused in a New Hampshire district court in 1979. The charge was driving while intoxicated (DWI), second offense. It was reduced to a DWI, first offense, to which the defendant entered a plea of not guilty. Admitting to sufficient facts, he was found guilty. Following the current practice at that court, no acknowledgement of rights was executed or filed.
