Classifications of Felony Crimes in New Hampshire
As a basic definition, a felony crime in New Hampshire is one that could be punishable by more than a year in prison. There are two categories of felony crimes, including Class A felonies and Class B felonies, with the former constituting a much more serious penalty. Some Class A felonies could include:
- Assault resulting in serious bodily injury
- Theft of property valued at $1,000 or more
- Sex crimes
- Drug crimes
Many Class A felonies are punishable by 7 1/2 to 15 years in prison, up to 5 years of probation, and a maximum fine (in non-drug cases) of around $4,000. On the other hand, some Class B felonies could include:
- Computer fraud
- Possession of small amounts of illegal substances
- Driving while intoxicated (for fourth and subsequent offenses only)
- Theft of property valued more than $500 but less than $1,000
For a Class B felony, the court can only impose a maximum prison sentence of 3 1/2 to 7 years and a maximum fine of $2,000. Keep in mind that this information is not conclusive, as a miscellany of factors can influence the severity of the punishment. Furthermore, special felonies such as most sexual assault offenses, homicide, and related charges often carry sentences ranging from 10 to 20 years to life in prison.
