New Hampshire Set To Increase Penalties For Some DWI Crashes
A New Hampshire bill aimed at strengthening penalties for repeat drunk drivers is headed to the governor's desk.
The House on Thursday agreed to the Senate's version of Tyler Shaw's Law.
The measure is named for a 20-year-old Concord man who died in 2018 when a repeat drunk driver sped off a highway exit, through a stop sign and into Shaw's truck.
The bill would increase penalties to 10 to 20 years in prison for drunk drivers who kill or maim someone after a prior driving while intoxicated conviction.
Gov. Chris Sununu said he plans to sign it.
