Sex offender pleads guilty to creating Facebook account and failing to tell police


MANCHESTER - A convicted sex offender who kept a social media account from police was back in court and pleaded guilty Wednesday.

Norman St. Hilaire, of Manchester pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges and was sentenced to one year in jail, after failing to tell police that he created a Facebook page while being a registered sex offender.

St. Hilaire's status as a sex offender stems back to 1987 when he pleaded guilty to felony sexual assault.

He is now trying to get his name off the state's sex offender registry, and in February the New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled in favor of his request for a hearing on the matter.

Thursday, the Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee will hold a hearing on a bill that would set guidelines for allowing some one to be removed from the registry, which would include notifying the victims.
