Son of Nashua conservative activist Jennifer Horn arrested for pot
NASHUA – The son of conservative activist Jennifer Horn was arrested and charged with marijuana possession and under aged transport of alcohol while driving in Ashland Saturday, the Manchester Union Leader is reporting.
Thomas Horn, 18, of Nashua was traveling with two teenage friends from Manchester when state police stopped him on Interstate 93 about 11 p.m., police records show.
Police said they charged Horn with minor transporting alcohol, a violation-level offense, and misdemeanor marijuana possession. Passengers Robert Hoaglund and Callan Leonard, both 18 of Manchester, each are charged with marijuana possession, police said.
All three were released and have court appearances set for May 26 in Plymouth District Court.
Horn is the third oldest of five siblings and lives with his parents at 4 Fireside Circle home in Nashua.
“We love all of our children and we will help them get through the challenges that they face as they move through adolescence,” Jennifer Horn said in a telephone interview Wednesday. She had no further comment.
Jennifer Horn is a former two-time Republican candidate for Congress, radio talk show host and newspaper columnist who has emerged as a key player in the state’s conservative movement. She recently founded and is president of the conservative non-profit organization, “We the People: A First in the Nation Freedom Forum,” to promote core conservative principles of freedom, limited government and personal responsibility. The group’s kick-off event took place Saturday.
