Gambling charges against Lebanon Legion post dismissed
In a filing at Grafton County Superior Court, Saffo said her office couldn't prove its case against Guyer-Carignan Post 22.
"However, post indictment, evidence of the efforts of the ... American Legion to ensure that they were following the law came to light."
Calling the post's members and administrators "incredibly stand-up guys," who had no intention of breaking the law, Ostler said they worked hard following a similar incident in 2010 to make sure all their gaming activities were conducted within New Hampshire law.
In April, a Grafton County Superior Court grand jury indicted the post on two Class B felony counts for gambling, and a charge called "entertainment and entertainers."
State Liquor Commission agents raided the post Feb. 1 and confiscated about $15,000 in what they said were illegal gambling proceeds.
Ostler said Saturday he would work now to have the state return the post's most recently seized money.
