In New Hampshire, a person is guilty of False Imprisonment if he knowingly confines another unlawfully so as to interfere substantially with his physical movement. The term “confining another unlawfully” means confinement by force, threat or deception.
Allegations of False Imprisonment tend to arise in Domestic Violence cases. For example, during a heated verbal argument one person stands in the doorway blocking the other person from leaving the room by a show of force or threats.
