Laconia woman in hurry arrested

CONCORD — It seems she was in a hurry to get to an appointment for a car stereo installation. Instead, Anastacia E. Hocking, 21, of Laconia, was intercepted by State Trooper First Class Jeffrey Ardini after he observed her driving recklessly during a winter storm and on the snow- and slush-covered roadway on I-93 in Concord. Hocking was charged with reckless driving after her vehicle was measured by radar to be traveling 91 mph. If convicted, Hocking could face a fine of up to $1,000 and a minimum 60-day loss of license.

Tom Tardif loses lawsuits against city, may have to pay court cost

By MICHAEL KITCH, LACONIA DAILY SUNLACONIA — A Superior Court justice has flatly denied claims by Tom Tardif that the Belknap County Convention violated the Right to Know law as well as statutes prescribing the scheduling and noticing of its meetings. At the same time, Justice Amy Ignatius of Carroll County Superior Court ordered a subsequent hearing on the county's request that Tardif pay its attorney's fees. Three meetings of the county convention were posted for the 4th, 6th and 8th of April, 2016. Since the convention failed to properly post the meeting on April 8, Tardif alleged, the actions it took were invalid. Although filed in Belknap County Superior Court, this litigation will also likely be heard in Carroll County Superior Court, which has ruled on the other suits Tardif has recently brought against the county and city of Laconia.

State ready to bid out Meredith downtown road improvements

More modest, pedestrian-focused work will last through 2018, according to Don Lyford, project manager with the New Hampshire Department of Transportation. The state also plans to remove a driving lane northbound from Route 3 to Route 25 in order to widen the street and ease left turns onto Route 25, according to Lyford. Phil Warren, Meredith town manager, was a member of the public advisory committee which helped guide development of this project. He said town officials are pleased to see the Meredith US 3/NH 25 Improvements project finally get off the ground. This wider travelway will make left turns from Route 3 onto Route 25 easier, especially for trucks, he said.

Jury returns ‘not guilty’ verdicts in sex assault case of preteen girl

Under careful questioning by the prosecutor, she recounted that the sexual assault started with infrequent touching through her clothing and then progressed in variety and increased in frequency. Opponents charge it creates a new standard that would only apply to crimes of sexual assault, not to victims of any other crimes. A related measure, House Bill 284, would change the term "victim" to "complainant" is sexual assault cases. "They also send a message to the public that here in New Hampshire, a sexual assault victim is less credible than a victim of any other crime." Randy Nadeau listens as Judge Larry Smukler instructs the jury during Nadeau's sexual assault trial that ended Wednesday with the jury acquitting Nadeau.
