Keene, NH- Former State Attorney General and County Attorney Peter Heed pled guilty on Tuesday to Driving while intoxicated.
Heed who appeared in court a day earlier than originally scheduled because the state had to find a neutral and detached Justice to prosecute the case because of Heed's familiarity with the surrounding courts.
After pleading guilty to the charges against him, Heed was ordered to pay a $500.00 fine and had his driver's license suspended for 9 months, a standard sentence for first time offenders with no extenuating circumstances.
Court officials said Heed can petition to have his driving privileges restored after 90 days in the event he successfully finishes the Impaired Driver Care Management plan during the first 14 days of his conviction.
State police arrested the former State Attorney General and County Attorney on January 11th along Route 9 after receiving a report of an erratic driver.
Heed left the County Attorney's office in December of 2012 to join a private law firm with hopes of starting a practice in Cheshire County.
