Many times this involves some type of robbery attempt. And in New Hampshire, law enforcement authorities don’t take this lightly. They work hard to make arrests in cases where people use weapons to rob someone.
In this state, robbery is classified as a felony. Prosecutors can seek either Class A or B felony charges, depending on the circumstances of your case.
If you did any of the following in committing the crime, they will probably seek Class A felony charges against you:
- If you were armed with a deadly weapon
- If you presented yourself so the victim could have thought you were armed with a deadly weapon
- If you either inflicted or meant to inflict serious injury or even death on someone during the commission of this act.
In New Hampshire, the Criminal Code lays out the penalties for such crimes in RSA 651:2.
Here, you will learn that you could be sentenced by a judge to up to 15 years in prison if you are found guilty of an armed criminal activity, such as armed robbery. And just by having a gun on you when this is committed, you could get a sentence of up to 20 years. And the minimum sentence for this crime is three years.
Even if you are convicted on lesser Class B felony charges, you will still likely serve time in prison. In this case you face a maximum sentence of seven years. And there are fines associated with both offenses, which go up to $4,000. Again, this all depends on the circumstances of your case.
