Mounting Defenses to Criminal Charges in New Hampshire

In all criminal cases, the state has the burden to prove each element of the alleged offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Defending your case may require presenting proof in rebuttal, as well as moving to exclude evidence offered by the prosecution. In many cases, drugs and other items obtained as the result of an improper search and seizure, or discovered due to other violations of due process rights, may be suppressed by the court.

Drug possession laws and the penalties resulting from a conviction may vary according to the classification of the substance, the amount, and the intent of the individual in possession of the drug. While possession of marijuana is a class A misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of a $2,000 fine and one year in jail, possession of other controlled drugs may be a felony charge punishable by up to seven years in prison and fines up to $25,000. The criminal charge and ensuing penalties are more serious for subsequent possession offenses or intent to sell. A charge for the transportation of drugs may result in a misdemeanor conviction if the state proves that the individual knew of the drug’s presence and status as a controlled substance, had control of the drug, and knowingly transported it.

Criminal charges for DUI and other offenses may result in harsh consequences if you are convicted of the offense, including hefty fines, community service, mandatory participation in treatment and education programs, license suspension and revocation, and even jail time. Don’t let a DWI arrest turn into a conviction. A successful legal defense may lead to a lesser charge, favorable plea agreement, or acquittal or dismissal of the charges. If you have been charged with a criminal violation or misdemeanor offense, let us help protect your rights.
