Derry, NH--- Jo-Anne MacKenzie Editor of the Derry News is in some trouble with the law for potential criminal 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 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.
Jo-Anne MacKenzie ran a story and Police Log in 2009 and again in 2010 that continue to run online 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.
Ms. Mackenzie refused to take calls to comment.
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. The piece from Jo-Ann MacKenzie published as Editor of the Derry News and continues to be found online falls into this violation of NH State Law.
