Former NH state trooper gets new state job after 2010 conviction
Fredette, who earns $29,094 annually, is responsible for collecting any restitution, fines or fees the court orders a convicted defendant to pay, then ensuring the money is distributed to the designated party, Lyons said.
Fredette was convicted and sentenced June 10, 2010, in Concord District Court on three counts of tempering with public records while he inspected commercial licenses at New Hampshire State Police Troop G Barracks - Commercial Vehicle Enforcement.
Fredette was sentenced to 90 days at Merrimack County House of Corrections, all suspended for six months. In addition, he had to complete 20 hours of community service and pay $260 in restitution to the state.
Lyons said the hiring process included a review of Fredette's prior criminal history to determine if it would affect his ability to perform the job.
"We followed all of our hiring policies and practices and it is our belief that Mr. Fredette has already proven to us that he is a dedicated hard-working corrections employee and will continue to be so," Lyons said.
Fredette's wife, Ella M. Fredette, also is a state corrections department employee who earns an annual salary of $41,710.50 as a human resources coordinator level 2, Lyons said.
