Lebanon American Legion post accused of allowing gambling
A Grafton County Superior Court grand jury indicted Guyer-Carignan, Post 22 for gambling and a charge called "entertainment and entertainers," according to the indictments. The latter charge refers to gambling at an establishment that's licensed to sell "alcohol and/or liquor."
Reached at the post on Thursday, Bill Wilson, Guyer-Carignan's financial officer, said the state confiscated some $15,000. He said the money was gleaned from raffles and was used to benefit charity.
"It was already pre-approved from the state. We pay $70,000 a year in money for charities, and we run two Legion teams."
"We honestly feel that we complied with the state. We're baffled," Wilson said, of the latest action and the indictments.In other indictments the grand jury handed up during its April session: Christopher A. Rochon, 24, of 104 Pine Ridge Road in Lisbon, faces a host of charges that stem from what prosecutors say was his Aug. 16, 2013, attack on a woman in Littleton.Rochon is charged with three counts of simple assault, second-degree assault (strangulation), false imprisonment, criminal threatening and criminal trespassing.Rochon is accused of biting Carolyne Herbert on the arm, pinning her down by holding her arms, pulling her by her hair causing her to experience impeded breathing by putting his hands on her neck, and confining Herbert unlawfully by blocking her exit from a residence and pushing her back inside.Rochon also allegedly threatened Herbert and refused repeated requests to leave her 35 Crane St. residence in Littleton.The simple assault counts, false imprisonment, criminal threatening and criminal trespassing are all Class A misdemeanors. Second-degree assault is a Class B felony.Lydia Hunter, 33, of 599 Route 4A, Enfield, is charged with fraudulent use of a credit card for property and services in excess of $1,500 between June 5 and Sept, 5, 2013, in Lebanon.Hunter allegedly knew at the time that her use of the card was not authorized, either by the issuer or the card holder who was 65 or older and suffered from memory problems."Lydia Hunter acted with intent to take advantage of the victim's age or mental condition that impaired the victim's ability to manage her property or financial resources or to protect her rights or interests," according to the indictment.
