No. Examples of violent crime include murder, aggravated sexual assault, kidnapping, robbery, first degree assault, and a variety of other offenses. Examples of obstruction of justice crimes include falsifying evidence and witness tampering. In the state of New Hampshire, only two classes of people are never qualified for an annulment: 1) persons who have been convicted of violent criminal offenses and 2) persons who have been convicted of obstruction of justice offenses. Examples of obstruction of justice crimes include falsifying evidence and witness tampering. Even though you may qualify, it is still up to the court whether or not to grant your petition. The court will only grant an annulment if they believe doing so will assist the criminal defendant with rehabilitation. Persons who have continued to engage in criminal behavior will likely not be given an annulment. The court will not grant an annulment in cases where there is reason to believe that the petitioner poses a threat to the safety and well-being of the public at large.
