AG probe examines change on Rockingham County's Laurie list

Rockingham County Attorney James Reams is accused of turning over Laurie lists to the state that designated Lamb as “cleared” of such complaints since July 7, 2011, state prosecutors said Tuesday.
“I am not the least bit concerned about it,” Reams said. “All I can say is that I have not violated any policy.”
“I can say at this juncture that there is no evidence of any criminal wrongdoing,” said Young.
An internal email sent to county prosecutors about Lamb’s status on the Laurie List, and a civil lawsuit Lamb filed against the town of Salem corroborates his identity. The New Hampshire Union Leader received a printed copy of the email anonymously.
“Prior lists issued from this office had erroneously listed Lamb as ‘cleared,’” he said in the email.
Reams returned to office April 30 after waging a six-month court battle with Attorney General Joe Foster, challenging his authority to suspend him from office.
“I’m shocked that they included my name (in the complaint),” Reid said. “No. I didn’t have access to the document in question. I am aware of the Laurie issue because of our case management system.”
The complaint by state prosecutors about Reams may raise questions for another veteran prosecutor in his office. Lamb, the retired police sergeant, is married to Assistant County Attorney Patricia Conway who has worked under Reams’ leadership since 1999, according to interviews and court records.
The state’s complaint against Reams does not accuse Conway or her husband of having any role in removing Lamb’s name from the Laurie list. Lamb struck an agreement with the town of Salem in October 2009 allowing him to retire from the police department after he appealed his termination, according to a civil lawsuit filed by Lamb against the town.
