NH officials give lawyers names of more cops who may not be certified to do breath tests

The Associated Press

CONCORD — The New Hampshire attorney general's office has released to defense attorneys the names of nearly 150 officers whose certifications to perform breath tests in suspected drunken driving cases may be in question.

Deputy Attorney General Ann Rice on June 19 notified the state's criminal defense lawyers that at least 64 state and local police officers took a flawed re-certification test over the past 18 months that could call into question more than 100 drunken driving prosecutions. She said a technology glitch allowed the officers to bypass half the exam.

In a second letter this week, Rice provided defense lawyers with a list of 149 officers who may have been mistakenly given credit for answering a question correctly.

She stressed that she and the Department of Safety consider their certifications valid.
