N.H. man sentenced on probation violation

CONCORD – Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald and Concord Police Chief Bradley Osgood said Charles Maynard, 30, formerly of Hooksett, was sentenced by the Merrimack County Superior Court on a violation of probation and was ordered to serve six months of a previously suspended sentence for the sale of methamphetamine.

On May 22, Maynard pleaded guilty to the sale of carfentanil and the sale of methamphetamine. On the methamphetamine sale charge, Maynard was sentenced to 12 months in the house of corrections with six months suspended for two years conditioned on good behavior, compliance with probation and completion of a LADAC (licensed alcohol and drug abuse counselor) evaluation. On the carfentanil sale charge, Maynard was sentenced to one to three years in the New Hampshire State Prison, all of which was suspended for five years conditioned on good behavior, compliance with probation and completion of the LADAC evaluation.

On Aug. 20, state officials filed a violation of probation against Maynard due to his failure to obtain the required LADAC evaluation. A supplemental violation of probation was later filed on Dec. 11 after Maynard was arrested by the Concord Police Department for charges of misdemeanor theft by unauthorized taking and resisting arrest or detention.

In addition to the sentence imposed on the violation of probation, Maynard also pleaded guilty to the new misdemeanor charges resulting from his December arrest. Upon his release from incarceration, Maynard will remain on probation until 2023.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Benjamin Agati and Assistant Attorney General Nicole Clay prosecuted this case.
