Nashua lawmaker sorry for the dead ducks, pays fine
Campbell made the plea at the 9th Circuit Court, Nashua District Division, and paid a fine of $620 for the violation, along with a $75 restitution payment to New Hampshire Fish and Game, says court records.
"I continue to be extremely sorry and take full responsibility for causing the death of five ducks …," Campbell said in a written statement emailed Friday to the New Hampshire Union Leader. "My actions were unintentional, yet hurtful … I apologize and ask forgiveness from those I have offended, and from others that may judge me solely on the basis of this very unfortunate accident."
Campbell, 56, of 10 E. Dunstable Road, had issued a previous apology for running over the ducks with his BMW when the act first made headlines.
Following his appearance in court on Friday, Campbell was scheduled to participate in the Greater Nashua Chamber of Commerce's annual Legislative Symposium as a guest speaker on the topic of bringing a gas tax to New Hampshire.
