NH Police Chief Was Sexual Predator, Avoids Prosecution
The former police chief of New London, NH, David Seastrand, resigned in April 2013, after a young Colby-Sawyer student came forward, claiming he said he'd drop her underage drinking charge if she'd pose nude for him.
Shortly thereafter, several other young women stepped forward with similar tales. One claims that Seastrand coerced her into having sex with him, the other says he got rid of a parking ticket for her after she posed in lingerie.
Last week, the NH AG decided not to file criminal charges.
This predator was on the force for 27 years. He gets to keep his nice retirement package.
New London is quite a drive from where Maura went missing (78 miles). But I thought it was worth mentioning. Of course, the Haverhill Police Chief had his own demons.
