Felony Stalking Case Ends in Acquittal

September 25, 2017

Less than a month after hearing a not guilty verdict in a Strafford County manslaughter case, Richard Samdperil was in the Rockingham County Superior Court defending a client charged with felony Stalking and with violating a protective order. The client was charged by local police in 2016 and later indicted by a Rockingham County grand jury for an encounter at a public arts venue in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. If convicted, the client faced a possible sentence of 3 1/2 - 7 years in prison, plus fines. At trial, the prosecution presented testimony from the complaining witness and the police detectives who investigated the matter.  After a brief deliberation, the jury found Samdperil's client not guilty of both charges.
