Vote endorses attorney general oversight of Rockingham County Attorney's Office
Reams left office last Tuesday just two months before he was set to face state removal proceedings that accused him of sexual harassment, ethical violations and alleged misuse of a forfeiture account.
The interim-replacement would oversee prosecutions in the office until voters elect a new top prosecutor this fall in the general election, according to county delegates.
Rep. Gene Charron, R-Chester, said he supports tapping the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office to help the county attorney’s office until the fall. The state would pay for the cost of the prosecutor appointed to the position.
The state attorney general’s office, which investigated the Reams case, has been overseeing county prosecutions since Reams was suspended last November.
Charron said that if there were problems with the attorney general’s office, he would have likely heard from employees.
