Laconia councilor will fight police officer assault charge
A prominent city lawyer, Bownes is a Ward 2 city council member.
“They claim that I assaulted an officer, but I have not seen a criminal complaint yet, so I don’t know what I’m dealing with here,” he said.
Bownes said it was the chief’s son, Cpl. Jason Fiske, who was involved in the incident that led to the arrest.
“My lawyer has requested discovery in the case, and he has advised me that it wouldn’t be a wise thing for me to comment on this at this point. I don’t even know what the complaint is going to say.”
According to court officials, Bownes was released on $2,000 personal recognizance bail and scheduled for arraignment on June 9, in Concord District Court.
From 1982 to 1986, he was a public defender in Laconia.
He opened his law office in Laconia in 1986, specializing in criminal law, workers’ compensation law, civil and personal injury cases, and administrative law.
