Milford -9th Circuit District Court

The New Hampshire 9th Circuit - District Division - Milford Court, commonly known as the Milford District Court, is located in Milford, Hillsborough County, NH. This Court handles misdemeanor and violation cases brought by the following towns: Milford, Brookline, Amherst, Mason, Wilton, Lyndeborough, and Mont Vernon. The State Police also bring cases here, typically involving a motor vehicle stop or accident on Route 101.

All local violations and misdemeanors go through this Court, including:

When charged as a Class A misdemeanors, such crimes carry penalties of up to one year in the house of correction and/or a $2,000 fine. Even when the charge is not a Class A Misdemeanor, severe consequences may be imposed such as fines, “no contact” orders, loss of driver’s license, and court ordered treatment or programming (which can be very expensive).

Beware of "Collateral Consequences"

Major motor vehicle offenses, and even certain "minor" (seemingly non-serious) motor vehicle offenses such as speeding tickets, can cause a driver to become certified as an habitual offender and lose her license for years if there are as few as three convictions in a five-year period. Many criminal and motor vehicle convictions carry "collateral consequences" that are not commonly discussed in court proceedings and not explained in standard court forms. For example, a person convicted of conduct after an accident will have to obtain and pay for an SR-22 for three years as a condition of continuing to have a driver's license. As another example, a person convicted of simple assault for pushing her roommate may face a lifetime ban on Second Amendment rights - no guns for life.
