Laconia man pleads guilty to threatening firefighters who administered Narcan
LACONIA - A local man who threatened to kill city firefighters who'd administered Narcan to his girlfriend pleaded guilty and received a suspended sentence.
According to the Laconia Citizen, Ernest Thompson II, 31, of 47 Strafford St. was arrested after he threatened to shoot firefighters after they administered the potentially life-saving drug overdose medication to his girlfriend who later died.
He pleaded guilty to engaging in intimidating behavior after being told to cease and desist.
Thompson was sentenced to 12 months in jail but that will be suspended if he remains on good behavior and completes an evaluation by a licensed drug and alcohol counselor by Feb. 16. He'll also be required to provide written proof that he's complying with the counselor's recommendations every three months.
Thompson also pleaded guilty to a methamphetamine-related charge, where the sentence also was deferred on condition of good behavior.
