Police charge hotel guest with felonies in alleged random attack

The vast majority of crimes have some kind of motive or intent that lies behind the suspect's actions. New Hampshire authorities rarely see a criminal arrest that does not have a reason for the accused person's alleged criminality. However police in Portsmouth recently arrested a woman on various violent felonies and indicated that her actions were purely random in nature. 

Stopping man to question re felonies needs reasonable suspicion

There must be proof beyond a reasonable doubt of each element of the charged crime to validate a conviction under the New Hampshire criminal laws. The mere location of an individual in the vicinity of a reported crime is insufficient in itself to validate a criminal charge. That issue may become relevant in the arrest of a 24-year-old man by Merrimack police recently on charges that he committed the felonies of attempted burglary and other violations.

Police charge man with felonies for helping minors with robbery

Criminal liability in New Hampshire can be based on an alleged criminal actor's activities in directing the criminal behavior of other persons. This may be a particularly apt crime for authorities to charge when they assert that an adult has managed and/or directed or supported the criminal activities of minors. The issue is relevant in the recent arrest of a 45-year-old Concord man who the police say is responsible for the felonies of armed robbery and sale of a controlled drug.

Police: Woman committed felonies by taking frequent flyer points

In New Hampshire, is the theft of frequent flier points from one's former employer a provable criminal act? The Manchester Police would answer affirmatively based on their arrest of a 36-year-old woman for felonies involving her alleged taking of two million airline points from her former employer. The authorities say that the value of the points equates to $300,000.

Man arrested on 2 felonies for allegedly burglarizing businesses

Nashua police charged a New Hampshire resident with a pair of burglaries that they say he committed in June and July. The police did not reveal the details of the alleged felonies and the press reports do not say what evidence the police have to implicate the suspect in the crimes. It is unclear whether there were outstanding warrants out on the man prior to his arrest recently by authorities.

Man charged with felonies for alleged threats against woman

Threatening to cut a person's head off can result in a serious criminal charge in New Hampshire. Making such statements, however, may not indicate criminal intent but could merely be a bad case of indigestion leading to a grumpy disposition. The criminality of such an alleged threat is determined by the circumstances in which it is made. The surrounding facts must show the suspect's criminal intent to carry out a true crime and to thus commit the felonies with which he is charged. 

Man, his mother, charged with attempted murder, other felonies

Domestic disputes among New Hampshire residents can be so rancorous that a participant may occasionally get upset enough to want to have the other person eliminated. This can lead to a host of felonies being committed and charged against the accused perpetrator. Prison sentences in such matters are not lenient.

Felonies: Man charged with attempted murder in alleged attack

In New Hampshire and all other states, it is basic in our system of criminal law that an accused is protected by the presumption of innocence until and unless proved guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. This applies to misdemeanors as well as felonies, and it is mandatory even where guilt may appear to be overwhelming. This is necessary to assure that everyone is treated fairly and not deprived of their freedom without substantial proof presented in a court of law.

Woman who gets playground grant charged with felonies

Identity theft and/or fraudulent identity can lead to a variety of illegal results that may violate New Hampshire and federal laws. Few of these cases contain mixed motives on the part of the identity thief, but one such scenario surfaced recently in New Hampshire when the Nashua police arrested a woman for the felonies of identity fraud and being a fugitive from justice. The accused allegedly masqueraded as a Harvard-trained grant writer in an attempt to access funds from the city of Nashua.

Felonies alleged against physician for drug company kickbacks

New Hampshire prosecutors are increasing their efforts to stop the rising epidemic of opioids in the state. The Acting U.S. Attorney recently announced the arrest of a physician's assistant on charges that he received payments from a drug company in return for prescribing a fentanyl-based spray to patients in the alleged violation of federal law. Authorities have charged him with several felonies relating to the kickback charges.
