Charlestown Man Sentenced for One Year for Receiving Stolen Property
Will be Evaluated for TRAILS Program
Gage King, 25 of Charlestown, NH, was sentenced in Sullivan Superior Court on September 13 to serve a 12-month period of incarceration at the Sullivan County House of Corrections for the misdemeanor crime of receiving stolen property. King will be evaluated for the Sullivan County TRAILS Program, pursuant to that sentence, which is an intensive incarceration based treatment program run by the Sullivan County House of Corrections, and one based upon best practices. King was also sentenced to serve an additional 12-month period of incarceration for the misdemeanor crime of domestic violence. That sentence was suspended, conditioned upon good behavior, for a period of 3 years. He will also be supervised by the New Hampshire Department of Corrections for a period of two years.
King’s conviction arose as a result of a Charlestown Police Department investigation commenced on July 15, 2018. On that date, an individual reported to Officer Jeremiah Haynes that King had threatened to retrieve a firearm from his vehicle and shoot another family member the day prior. The reporting party subsequently learned one of his firearms had been stolen from the residence, which was shared by King, according to the County Attorney’s office. The firearm, a Smith & Wesson 9MM handgun, was later found to be in in a bag in King’s vehicle.
The Charlestown Police Department conducted this investigation, and the case was prosecuted by Deputy Sullivan County Attorney Justin Hersh.
