Former selectman gets 20-year term for child sex crimes
CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A former New Hampshire town selectman has been sentenced to at least 20 years in prison for sex crimes against three juveniles.
WMUR-TV reports 75-year-old Merton Mann was found guilty of assaulting two 5-year-old boys and indecent exposure involving a teenager. Authorities said the crimes took place over a decade.
Defense lawyers asked for a minimum of five years in prison, but Judge John Kissinger said that wasn’t enough time, based on the crimes.
Mann had been a selectman in Dunbarton.
