Sex Crime Defense

In New Hampshire, rape and other sex offenses are referred to as sexual assault. Aggravated felonious sexual assault is the most serious offense. Conviction for a first offense may result in up to 20 years in prison for each alleged act. Felonious sexual assault has penalties of up to seven years in prison for each alleged act for a first offense. Sexual assault is a misdemeanor and has a maximum penalty of one year in jail. Possible penalties in all cases will vary depending on the details of the offense and your prior record.

In addition to a jail or prison sentence, conviction for many sexual assault offenses requires sex offender registration on state and national registries. Sex offender registration can follow you for life, severely restricting your housing and job opportunities. Conviction can also mean lifetime supervision.
