Sentence Imposed on Convicted Drug Dealer Charles Maynard for Violating His Probation

Concord, NH – Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald and Concord Police Chief Bradley Osgood announce that today, Charles Maynard, age 30, formerly of Hooksett, New Hampshire, 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, 2018, Mr. Maynard pleaded guilty to the sale of carfentanil and the sale of methamphetamine. On the methamphetamine sale charge, Mr. Maynard was sentenced to twelve 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, Mr. Maynard was sentenced to 1–3 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 August 20, 2018, the State filed a violation of probation against Mr. Maynard due to his failure to obtain the required LADAC evaluation. A supplemental violation of probation was later filed on December 11, 2018, after Mr. 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 today on the violation of probation, Mr. Maynard also pleaded guilty to the new misdemeanor charges resulting from his December arrest. Upon his release from incarceration, Mr. Maynard will remain on probation until 2023.

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