The New Hampshire Public Defender has a branch office located in Keene, NH. With one Managing Attorney, Public Defenders, Panel Attorneys and other legal staff, the Keene Office cost-effectively provides quality representation to indigent defendants accused of crimes in Cheshire County (Southwestern New Hampshire). The New Hampshire Public Defender represents indigent people charged in New Hampshire courts with crimes that carry the possibility of jail time upon conviction. These offenses include Class A misdemeanors, which have a maximum penalty of one year in jail, and felonies, which carry the possibility of a state prison sentence of more than one year upon conviction. In addition, the Program represents people who have been charged with homicide, as well as those who are alleged to have violated their probation, parole, or a condition of a previously suspended sentence. However, this office cannot represent any person charged with a violation or a Class B misdemeanor, because people convicted of these offenses cannot be sentenced to jail.
