Burglary and Criminal Trespass
Section 635 of the New Hampshire criminal code governs Unauthorized Entries. Burglary and Criminal Trespass are considered Unauthorized Entries offenses.
Burglary is a class B felony or a class A felony if the burglary takes place under more serious circumstances. For example, entering a person's home at night or being armed with a deadly weapon during the burglary is a class A felony. A person convicted of a felony may be sentenced to imprisonment, jail, probation, and fined.
Criminal Trespass is an unauthorized entry. The first offense of criminal trespass is a misdemeanor. Subsequent criminal trespass offenses are class B felonies. Additionally, causing damage over $1,500 in value to another's property is a class B felony. While less serious than felonies, misdemeanor convictions will appear on a criminal record and involve a fine.
