Former NH lawmaker Kyle Tasker indicted on drug, gun charges


BRENTWOOD— A former state representative was indicted for felonies alleging his illegal possession of weapons and for allegedly offering marijuana to a minor.

Kyle Tasker, 31 of Nottingham, was indicted by the most recent Rockingham County grand jury with one charge of alleging his "felonious use of a firearm." That indictment alleges that Tasker possessed at least five weapons while also in possession of illegal drugs on March 1.

The weapons cited in the indictment are a Stag rifle, a .357 Magnum, a Glock 42-380, a Sig P227 and a Magnum revolver.

The indictment alleges Tasker's possession of those weapons was illegal because he was also in possession of the drugs MDMA, psilocin, hash oil and buprenorphine- with intent to sell them.

If convicted of that charge, Tasker faces 3.5 to 7 years in prison and a $4,000 fine.

Tasker was also indicted for a "special felony" of drug distribution alleging he texted a 14-year-old about "coming to his home to smoke marijuana, along with other activities." The indictment states that felony is punishable by 1.5 to three years in state prison and a fine of up to $25,000.

Tasker was arrested in March and charged with three drug offenses and one count of using a computer to lure a child. Tasker resigned from his post shortly after his arrest.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on the newest charges Oct. 7.
