Police impersonator pleads guilty to pulling over female motorists
Michael Heath, of Newmarket, pleaded guilty to two counts of false personation in Rockingham County Superior Court on Monday (JAMES A. KIMBLE/Union Leader Correspondent)
Michael Heath, 42, pleaded guilty to two counts of false personation on Monday in Rockingham County Superior Court as part of a negotiated plea deal with county prosecutors.
Heath used a badge and blue lights mounted in his 2005 Buick Century while stopping women driving in Stratham, Epping and Hampton.
A third victim from a Nov. 9, 2012 case in Epping told prosecutors that she thought Heath should have served the entire 12-month jail sentence.
Court documents say that Heath admitted to police during a Sept. 13 interview that he stopped motorists in Newfields, Hampton Falls, Newington, Portsmouth, and along roadsides in Maine and Massachusetts, according to a police affidavit.
“Mr. Heath acknowledged that he has been escalating his actions,” Hampton police Det. Christopher Gilroy said in a police report.
Delker warned Heath that if he violates the terms of his agreement, a probation officer will be allowed to jail him for up to seven days without a hearing. Prosecutors could also ask for a hearing to revoke his probation and impose some or all of a 3½- to 7-year prison sentence.
