If I leave the state of NH during a misdemeanor trial in which I am the defendant, what are the reprocussions?
I want to leave. Things are not good, it’s not a jury trial, the judge heard one half of it, the other half is scheduled for 8-30-10, things are in my favor, but I want to go now. I kind of need to go now. Is there any way? .
Legal, professional answers only please, not opinions.

You would become a fugitive, a warrant would be issued for your arrest, and your bail, if you posted any, would be forfeit.
You would also be guilty of the Federal felony of “interstate flight to avoid capture”.
