Few things impact your life more than being charged with a criminal offense. The consequences range from bad to completely disastrous. In New Hampshire, every criminal offense is classified as either a Misdemeanor or a Felony, and there are gradations within each of these major categories. Misdemeanors carry a possible penalty of up to 12 months incarceration and a $2,000 fine. Felonies carry penalties that can greatly exceed Misdemeanors. The two basic categories of felonies are Class A and Class B. They carry maximum penalties of 7 ½ to 15 years incarceration and 3 ½ to 7 years incarceration respectively, along with fines of $4,000 or even more, for drug felonies.
