As you can see from the NH Code below, the simple assault is a misdemeanor. A misdemeanor carries a penalty of possible one year incarceration. If convicted on all three that would be 3 years - it could run concurrent (at the same time) OR consecutive (one after the other). If this is a first offense, depending on the facts and matters, it is possible to get a suspended sentence with probation.
631:2-a Simple Assault. - I. A person is guilty of simple assault if he: (a) Purposely or knowingly causes bodily injury or unprivileged physical contact to another; or (b) Recklessly causes bodily injury to another; or (c) Negligently causes bodily injury to another by means of a deadly weapon. II. Simple assault is a misdemeanor unless committed in a fight entered into by mutual consent, in which case it is a violation.
Best to you in this matter,
I cannot predict what the sentence will be - but an educated, experienced guess would be probation with sentences suspended, perhaps, community service, court costs and possible fine.
