Police officer sentenced for falsifying documentation
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A former New Hampshire police officer has been sentenced on charges related to falsifying documentation of evidence.
Attorney General Gordon MacDonald announced March 28, 2018, that he was investigating the conduct of former Claremont Police Sgt. Ian Kibbe and Officer Mark Burch. WMUR-TV reports Burch pleaded guilty Thursday at court in Concord on a charge of unsworn falsification.
He was sentenced to serve 100 hours of community service and has been ordered to not seek further employment in New Hampshire law enforcement.
Kibbe pleaded guilty in December to misdemeanor charges of unsworn falsification and obstructing government administration. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail.
Claremont police officials say 20 cases involving Kibbe and Burch have been dropped.
