Facts about Sex Offenses
In New Hampshire, one of the most common sex offenses is sexual assault. Sexual assault is broken down into three categories.
- Sexual assault charged as a misdemeanor
- Felonious sexual assault, charged as a felony carrying a potential prison term of seven years
- Aggravated felonious sexual assault, charged as a felony carrying a potential prison term of 10 to 20 years.
Aggravated sexual assault can occur when force or threat of force is used, when committed against a minor, or in other special circumstances.
Aside from incarceration, upon a conviction you may be required to register as a sex offender which can restrict where you live, future employment, and other opportunities. Your name can be listed on national databases, and even the smallest mistake can land you in prison.
