Man allegedly beaten by former Salem police officer sentenced for pursuit
Templeton, who has served 172 days in county jail, will serve a 12-month sentence for the felony charge. He received a second 12-month sentence that will be deferred if he remains on good behavior.
Templeton will likely be a key witness in the case against Joseph Freda, a former Salem police officer, who is charged with striking Templeton in the head with a flashlight and stepping on his hands while Templeton was handcuffed and seated on the ground. The alleged assault happened moments after a state trooper and Windham police sergeant had arrested Templeton on Oct. 6, 2013.
"He caught up to him at a gas station," Bolton said, where Templeton asked the officer where he could get cash for some gas.
Bolton said Templeton drove between 90 to 100 mph as he fled southbound on Interstate 93 to Exit 2 and through Salem. State Trooper Andrew Monaco took over the pursuit once it reached the interstate.
