Man accused of sending false press release to affect NH State Rep election indicted


CONCORD - A false press release led to the indictment of a Concord man.

The Attorney General's Office said 28-year-old Carl Gibson sent out a press release in May 2015 claiming Yvonne Deane-Bailey was dropping out of a special election for NH State Representative.

Gibson, a former volunteer for Dean-Bailey's opponent, allegedly sent the release in order to deter people from going to the polls.

Dean-Bailey eventually beat Democratic challenger Maureen Mann in the May 19 election.

Gibson could face up to seven years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
