CONCORD — A Vermont man sentenced to 10 to 20 years in prison in a 2010 explosion that killed two workers at a New Hampshire gunpowder plant has appealed his case to the N.H. Supreme Court.
The Caledonian Record reports the court is scheduled to hear arguments June 18 regarding Craig Sanborn of Maidstone, convicted in 2013 of two counts of negligent homicide and manslaughter in connection with the Black Mag plant explosion in Colebrook.
Sanborn's lawyer questioned the testimony of a witness who did business with Sanborn, saying he may have embellished his background and was evasive about the gunpowder being involved in other accidents. A judge rejected a request to overturn the conviction.
In January, Sanborn was sentenced to 28 months in prison on a wire fraud conviction for defrauding a Maine town.
