HB 439 (2017)


Prohibits the admission of evidence of a victim's sexual history in any appeal, unless the New Hampshire Supreme Court rules it should be admitted. Before amendments, this bill added a blanket statement to New Hampshire’s criminal laws: "Prior consensual sexual activity between the victim of a crime and any person other than the defendant shall not be admitted into evidence in any prosecution under the criminal code, title LXII, in any court in this state.”
