Foremr N.H. attorney general admits to DWI

New Hampshire’s former attorney general, Peter Heed, pleaded guilty to driving while intoxicated Tuesday. His sentence included a $500 fine and a nine-month suspension of his driver’s license.

Heed can petition to have his license reinstated after 90 days if he completes the Impaired Driver Care Management Plan within 14 days of his conviction. The sentence Heed received in the standard for first-time offenders, state police said in a release, where no extenuating circumstances exist.

Heed was supposed to have been arraigned yesterday, but due to his familiarity with the courts, a “neutral and detached” judge was needed, police said. A judge was chosen and heard the case Tuesday.

He was arrested in Keene Jan. 10. He resigned as attorney general in 2004.
