Hooksett man convicted in fatal boating accident
Jurors returned with their decision around 4:20 p.m. and deliberated for roughly three hours.
Cable, who took the stand in his own defense, had started drinking on the morning of the incident and continued imbibing throughout the day while ferrying a group of friends to a sandbar on the lake, according to prosecutors.
Blanchard argued that Cable’s actions were illegal from the outset because he was operating the boat without a license, and had no boater training.
Defense lawyer Peter Anderson argued that prosecutors lacked a conclusive blood-alcohol test near the time of the crash that proved his client was intoxicated.
Jurors heard that blood alcohol tests taken from Cable showed his blood-alcohol level at .04 and .03 about six hours after the incident.
Judge Marguerite Wageling agreed to revoke Cable’s bail pending his sentencing hearing.
Cable faces up to 7½ to 15 years in state prison for the conviction of negligent homicide/driving while intoxicated.
