Sentencing date set for former NH police chief convicted of sexual assault
KEENE — Former police chief Robert Chambers has been convicted for decades old charges of sexual assault.
According to the Keene Sentinel, Robert Chambers, 64, was convicted of four counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault for sexually abusing a relative throughout her childhood.
Chambers sexually assaulted the minor several times between 1994 and 2000.
He appeared in Cheshire County Superior Court Thursday to face a jury of his peers.
He is being held in the Cheshire Country jail until his sentencing date, which is set for July, 7.
Chambers was the former police chief of Gilsum and Marlow and the only person to ever be arrested in connection with a cold case that started in 1978 involving the murder of Russell Bean. A grand jury later dismissed the case.
