to control a combative/ assaultive individual who has or attempted to cause physical bodily harm to the guard/ officer or on another person. or is in the act of destruction of property where the security guard/officer is there to protect?
A security guard is authorized to use the same degree of force as anyone else. In other words being a security guard means that a person may use force that is reasonable to protect a person or property. Handcuffs do not require a license and are not considered deadly force. If a security person...Read more »
My upstairs neighbor is extremely verbally abusive and has physically threatened her kids and me. I want to make it clear to the property management company how bad it is and want to record her from the hallway. NH is a two party consent state but the law seems to be written around direct...

NH is a consent recording state, but if the person is yelling so loudly that it can be heard in a public place then I would agree they have no expectation of privacy. It seems like you could record from your own apartment or the hallway, do not amplify or use any device to enhance the sound.

If you and your spouse are facing criminal charges, a condition of bail can be no contact. It could also be imposed on many assault type cases involving domestic violence. In short a judge can in fact prevent contact between spouses, children or anyone.
In the state of NH, if I decide to publish embarrassing, but accurate, information about another person, does simply giving that person the opportunity to talk me out of publishing constitute blackmail, if talking itself is the one thing that other person doesn't want to do?
Like many things in life. The answer to this question depends what the information consists of. There are criminal charges for blackmail (extortion), revenge porn and others. It largely depends on the nature of the embarassing information and the intent you possess that may dissuade publication....Read more »

Yes. If firefighter provided a statement and police got an arrest warrant. State would need to prove who driver of vehicle was. As always it is best to not answer any questions or provide any information. Contact a defense lawyer.
It sounds like this hearing would be an arraignment. You should contact a qualified lawyer that focuses on DWI defense near the location of the town that charged you. I would suggest that you look for a member of DUIDLA or NCDD.
I have attached link to FAQ about court on my website:...Read more »
You have been charged in the alternative. You can only be sentenced on one offense. It is common for the state to charge both an aggravated and a DWI 1st in many scenarios: a test over .16, eluding police, high speed etc. If state fails to prove the aggravating circumstance then court can...Read more »

I am not sure I heard a question. It seems more like a statement. It also appears as though you are concerned about your safety and if you think a crime has occurred you may want to report it to the police.
When I was 15 i vandalized someones car.i was supposed to pay off 1400$ and do prohibition. I finished my probation successfully and moved to virginia when i turned 18 i owe 285$ left on my probation can they transfer it to adult court because they are telling me i have a bench warrent now.
It depends. If you finished probation successfully and the case was closed it doesn't seem like there is anything that can be done. If it was left as a collections case only, they may be able to issue a warrant. I would suggest contacting the court and find out if there is a warrant and if...Read more »
