Legal Answers
Q. Is the use of handcuffs or other restraint devices by security officers/guards allowed for detainment in NH
A: A security guard is authorized to use the same degree of force as anyone else. In other words being a security guard means that a person may use force that is reasonable to protect a person or property. Handcuffs do not require a license and are not considered deadly force. If a security person was dealing with an unruly and dangerous person handcuffing or restraining the person would be permitted so long as they used a reasonable degree of force.
Q. Is it legal in NH to record a verbally abusive neighbor from an apartment hallway without their knowledge.
A: NH is a consent recording state, but if the person is yelling so loudly that it can be heard in a public place then I would agree they have no expectation of privacy. It seems like you could record from your own apartment or the hallway, do not amplify or use any device to enhance the sound.
Q. If my son had his friend over and the friend stole a hand gun out of a lock box what could we be charged with.
A: It is impossible to know if any charges could be brought without more information. You should contact a defense attorney and provide more background. It is always a good idea not to provide any statement to the police, indicating you have nothing to say is a good idea in almost all scenarios.
