  • Nashua man accused in drug death

    9 hrs ago | via Nashua Telegraph 

    When Nashua police arrested alleged high-level drug dealer Kevin Manchester in late February at his Pine Street apartment, local, state and federal authorities had already begun piecing together evidence to link him to the drug death in January of a 33-year-old acquaintance. That investigation - several months in the making - came to fruition late last week when a Hillsborough County Superior Court South grand jury indicted the 27-year-old Manchester on six counts of possessing and selling the narcotic drug fentanyl - one of which accuses him of selling the dose of fentanyl that killed Nashua resident Michelle MacLeod.

  • Former police chief's son may be released

    Sunday | via Nashua Telegraph 

    A probate judge has paved the way for Eric Largy's release from the state's psychiatric hospital, saying he shouldn't face a "life sentence" for allegedly assaulting his father, retired Nashua Police Chief Clifton Largy, seven years ago. Probate Judge David King said while he believes Eric Largy, 49, suffers from delusional disorder, there isn't sufficient evidence that he would be a danger to himself or others to warrant extending his involuntary commitment another five years.

What evidence does a trooper need to convict on a dui charge in NH?
it was roughly 130am. I was not speeding. I swerved a bit trying to text my wife. the trooper started tailgating me after for about 2 miles. I was unaware he was a trooper and made a quick lane change, signal and all to get out of his path. he acknowledged seeing text blaring on my phone from my wife. I think I did good on sobriety test. I did take a roadside BA came in at 1.01. back at station I refused the test. I have a great driving record. I understand the roadside BA test is not accurate. so he could agree my swerving may have been from texting not alcohol. if sobriety test were good, this leaves no concrete evidence since I did not take test at station, as long as roadside test is not admissable.
All he has to prove is that you were operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol and that you were...
