Paroled murderer from NH sentenced in Maine

Barry Brown pleaded guilty to moving to the state without authorization

FARMINGTON — A man convicted of murder in New Hampshire has pleaded guilty to a charge of moving to Maine without the proper authorization.

Barry Brown, of Raymond, N.H., was sentenced to 50 days in jail this week with credit for the time served since his arrest on Aug. 21 in Chesterville. The Sun Journal reports he is also required to return to New Hampshire and report to his parole officer.

The 50-year-old Brown was released on lifetime parole after serving more than two decades behind bars following a 1984 murder conviction.

Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said that although Brown had applied to New Hampshire probation authorities for permission to move to Maine, the process had not been completed when he was apprehended at a Chesterville home.
