NHSUPCO: State of New Hampshire v. Daniel Casanova - sex assault conviction upheld, kidnapping conviction reversed.

Daniel Casanova, was convicted of attempted kidnapping, see RSA 629:1 (2007); RSA 633:1 (2007), and attempted aggravated felonious sexual assault (attempted AFSA), see RSA 629:1; RSA 632-A:2 (Supp. 2012). On appeal, he argues that: (1) he was denied a unanimous jury verdict on the attempted AFSA charge; and (2) he was entitled to a dismissal of the attempted kidnapping charge based upon the “merger doctrine.” We affirm in part and reverse in part.
