BRENTWOOD – Rockingham County Attorney James Reams and his deputy Tom Reid were suspended from their offices as part of a joint state and federal probe looking into "managerial and operational" issues of their office.
Early this afternoon, the New Hampshire Union Leader has learned that a third person who works in the office has also been placed on administrative leave. Tthe third person was not identified.
Reams has been the county attorney for 15 years.
Attorney General Joe Foster and U.S. Attorney John Kacavas made a joint announcement about the unseating of Reams and his deputy during a press conference in Rockingham County Superior Court.
Foster said a former employee made a complaint to his office, which set off the investigation.
"The allegations were significant," Foster said.
The interview with the former employee "led us to a number of other former employees we interviewed along with agents from the FBI," Foster said. "The interviews corroborated the allegations made by the initial complainant and raised other issues."
