It is a felony of the 3rd degree. Maximum is 3.5-7 years. Call a lawyer. The lawyer can call the police officer to see if charges are pending.

Your case is in New Hampshire, but you posted this inquiry to Fla. attorneys, who cannot advise you unless they happen to be a member of the New Hampshire Bar.
