Offenses Involving Serious Bodily Harm
Generally, any crime that causes injury to another is characterized as
a violent crime. Violent offenses are severely punished under the New
Hampshire Revised Statutes Annotated. Violent crimes range from domestic
abuse to sexual assault,
murder to manslaughter, and they are generally felonies punishable by a prison sentence and high
fines. In our New Hampshire towns and communities, allegations of violent
crimes can lead to disturbing results, as press accounts prior to any
conviction often shape public opinion. Police officers, prosecutors and
courts typically take a hard line in the face of such allegations, imposing
high bail and restrictive bail conditions.
That is why an individual should not hesitate to hire a New Hampshire criminal
defense lawyer right away if facing charges of any violent crime.
Our criminal defense attorneys include former prosecutors and seasoned
defense lawyers, they have experience tending to high profile criminal
cases, managing press concerns and reshaping a case to improve the outcome.
When serious allegations surface, they snap into action quickly, tending
to bail issues and working to secure the release of a client.
As a case progresses and depending on the allegation, they request and
review medical records, enlist top experts in the field and work with
our clients in order to identify effective defenses. Our lawyers believe
firmly in effective pretrial litigation, researching and drafting motions
to suppress evidence and motions
limine seeking to exclude and limit the use of certain evidence in court. Our
criminal defense attorneys find that preparing well for trial regularly
creates opportunities to resolve case and where those discussions fail,
our criminal defense attorneys regularly take their cases to trial.
New Hampshire laws generally define serious bodily harm as any form of
injury or disfigurement, extreme mental anguish or trauma, disease or
loss of impairment of a sexual or reproductive organ. The criminal lawyers
