In New Hampshire, date rape is considered a serious offense. If you’ve been accused of date rape, you’ll need to have legal representation.

What is Date Rape?

Date rape can occur any time. It’s a crime that is most commonly reported by young people and often on college campuses. This kind of rape often happens between people who know each other, or who are at least acquaintances. The accused rapist can be a longtime partner or a one night stand of the victim.

No matter what the situation is, if you are accused of date rape, you need the kind of legal help that The Anzalone Law Firm can provide.

It also may involve your missing lots of time away from your job and your family.

While we understand the seriousness of the charges, we also know that sometimes false allegations are made. That’s why it is so important for you to have a qualified date rape attorney in charge of your case.

The penalties for date rape depend on the circumstances. For example, if the victim says the rape didn’t involve drugs or the use of a weapon, you’ll likely face a Class B felony under New Hampshire law, which is punishable by one to seven years in prison.

But if you are accused of using a weapon or drugging the victim, the charges can be bumped up to a Class A felony. A violent date rape that causes serious bodily injuries can be considered aggravated sexual assault under New Hampshire law. This is the state’s most serious rape charge. If you are convicted on these charges, you would face between 10 and 20 years in prison.

If your victim is under the age of 16, but over age 13, you could face another set of charges. For example this could be considered a felonious sexual assault even if the victim consented to the sex.

And, as discussed earlier, if this offense took place on a college campus, you will especially need criminal defense lawyer Michael Anzalone regardless of any independent investigation conducted by the school or the university’s police department.
