New Hampshire Prison Inmate Convicted of Delivering Contraband

(Berlin, NH) On March 26, 2007, an inmate from the Northern New Hampshire Correctional Facility (NCF) was sentenced in Coos County to one to three years in prison for Delivery of Articles to Prisoners. The inmate, Christopher Beaudoin, 26, of Nashua, will serve his sentence consecutively to his current sentence.

On September 13, 2006, NCF inmate Beaudoin was on work release to the Gorham Town Hall when he stole tobacco from construction workers and attempted to introduce it into the Berlin facility. When Correctional staff discovered this, the inmate was interviewed by investigators from the New Hampshire Department of Corrections and the New Hampshire State Police. During the interview the inmate admitted that he had taken the tobacco for his personal use and he was charged with the Class B felony.

“Introduction of contraband into a prison is a crime and the Department takes this seriously,” Commissioner William L. Wrenn said.

“The Department will take appropriate action to maintain a safe and secure environment at all of its facilities,” Commissioner Wrenn said.

Inmate Beaudoin is serving a two to five year sentence from Hillsborough County for robbery. He was incarcerated on February 17, 2005, and was eligible for parole on September 19, 2006.
