OSSIPEE, N.H. — One day after police captured David Hobson, ending a five-day manhunt, he appeared in Ossipee District Court this afternoon to face a felony charge of escape.

As per New Hampshire’s rules, Hobson did not enter a plea. Judge Robert Varney set bail at $500,000 cash or assurity.

Wearing an orange prison T-shirt and orange prison pants, Hobson didn’t speak during the 10-minute proceedings. Instead, he nodded and shook his head in response to the judge’s questions.

He wore shackles on his ankles and hands and didn’t have any visible injuries.

If, as expected, a grand jury indicts Hobson, he will be arraigned in Carroll County Superior Court, where he will enter his plea.

Assistant Carroll County Attorney Stephen Murray said he would ask the Superior Court to deny Hobson bail. If Hobson makes bail before then, his bail conditions state he would be subject to electronic monitoring. Hobson is in the midst of a prison sentence, however, at the Maine Correctional Center in Windham and must be returned there before he can be released.

Judge Varney also scheduled a probable cause hearing for Dec. 19.

Last week, Hobson escaped from Carroll County Jail, which led to a large manhunt throughout southern Maine.
