Three New Hampshire men have been charged with property crimes southwest of Rochester. The men were all recently indicted by the Hillsborough County Superior Court on burglary charges.
Each man now faces the possibility of spending years of their lives in prison if they are convicted of the charges.
All three men live in Nashua. One is just 18 years old. The other two are 26 and 30 years old.
So all three have many years of future employment and educational opportunities at risk because of the allegations they face. That potential for self-improvement and a more rewarding life is perhaps the best argument there is for the suspects to sit down with experienced attorneys and discuss available legal options, including dismissal or reduction of charges.
The 18- and 26-year-old were arrested in December after police were called by a woman who said two men had tried to break into her home. She said one man knocked on the front door while the other man went around to the back of her house.
She told police that she thought she startled the men because they ran off into some nearby woods.
A law enforcement officer later spotted two men who matched the woman’s description. During a conversation with the officer, the pair reportedly said they had tried to break into the woman’s house.
They’re charged with burglary in that matter, as well as with burglaries in a handful of other incidents in Nashua.
The 30-year-old is charged in a separate matter. Court documents indicate he entered an unlocked apartment and struck a man inside the residence with a piece of wood.
He’s charged with two Class A felonies: first-degree assault as well as burglary. He faces up to 15 years in state prison on each charge.
