Crimes Considered as Felonies in New Hampshire
Under New Hampshire law, felony crimes are the most significant criminal charges. Felony charges are separated into Class A and Class B felonies, with Class A being the most serious and carrying more severe penalties. Regardless of the classification, any felony conviction will have a negative impact on your life. That is why it is crucial that you have a New Hampshire felony attorney with extensive knowledge of the criminal justice system and experience defending clients in court. Examples of felony criminal charges include, but are not limited to:
- Assault that causes serious bodily injury
- Theft of property valued at more than $500
- Computer fraud
- Drug crimes
- Sex crimes
In addition to these charges, certain crimes that are usually considered misdemeanors may be charged as felonies. This generally happens when there are aggravating circumstances, such as aggravated DUI, wherein the action resulted in bodily harm, or when the defendant has one or more prior convictions.
Penalties for Felony Convictions
New Hampshire classifies felonies in two categories: Class A and Class B felonies. Class A felonies can result in prison sentences of seven to 15 years and fines of up to $4,000, depending on the specifics of the charges. Certain felonies in this category can also result in prison terms of between 10 and 20 years. Class B felonies, on the other hand, can result in prison terms between three and seven years.
