As you can see, assault charges can range from simple assault, which is the lowest charge of its kind in New Hampshire, to assault on a law enforcement officer, which is a major felony.

Simple assault is, quite simply, any assault that is unprivileged or unwanted. That can range from a touch to slapping or even a poke, under New Hampshire law. But even a minor offense can carry big consequences. For example, a Class A misdemeanor conviction on simple assault can bring you 12 months in jail and up to a $2,000 fine.

Compare this to first-degree assault charge, which is a Class A felony. With this type of charge, you could face up to 15 years in prison. Even a second-degree assault charge, a Class B felony, carries up to seven years in prison.
