Alisha McDevitt of NH Station WMUR In Misdemeanor Violation of NH State Law

Monday October 4, 2010

Manchester, NH---Alisha McDevitt the News Director of NH news station WMUR is in violation of NH State Law RSA 651.V.XII, which is a misdemeanor.

The NH law RSA 651.V.XII makes it illegal to report information on on an individual who has had charges brought against them but where the charges were either dropped or a non-guilty verdict was reached and where the arrest and charges were later annulled and expunged.

RSA 651.V.XII, reads as follows: A person is guilty of a misdemeanor if, during the life of another who has had a record of arrest or conviction annulled pursuant to this section, he discloses or communicates the existence of such record.

Alisha McDevitt ran a story in 2009 and again in 2010 that contained false and derogatory information about a NH man who was falsely charged with several crimes by the Londonderry NH Police Department in 2009, that were later dropped and a non-guilty for resisting arrest was reached unanimously by a jury of his peers.

The charges were brought against the man by a Nashua, NH woman who was refused a rental apartment because she had several criminal convictions against her, was a drug addict and worked as a stripper. The woman filed assault and criminal threatening charges against the man and the Londonderry NH Police Department both failed to investigate the evidence in that case that would have exonerated the man and in many respects attempted to railroad the man.

Chief William Hart and four of his officers and one detective are currently being investigated by the NH Attorney General's Office Criminal Investigation Bureau regarding numerous anomalies surrounding this case. The officers and one detective include:(Officer Glenn L. Aprille, Officer Jason M. Archambault, Officer Kelly W. Kulig, Officer James J. Freda and Detective Donald A. LaDuke). Chief Hart could not be reached regarding a comment.

"Alisha McDevitt has destroyed this man's life by reporting information about the unidentified man that he was falsely accused of back in 2009, the man was cleared of all charges and received an annulment by a NH Superior Court," said Casey Clark, a close family friend of the man. "Alisha McDevitt should be held accountable for her actions in destroying this man's life. His wife left him because of this story, he lost his house, could not find a job and attempted suicide, it's disgusting what this woman and her so called news organization have done, I hope she is convicted of the misdemeanor," said Clark.

Clark also stated that she believed that Alish McDevitt did not run articles about bad cops being charged with crimes.

"There was a case where Londonderry Police Officer Jason Archambault was arrested in Manchester and charged with assault against his girlfriend. This is a charge that the public has a right to know about, yet even though it was reported directly to Alisha McDevitt, she never ran the piece. It is obvious that she will not run stories, the truth about the police, because she is in bed with the police, it is clear," said Clark.
