Suspected NH drug dealer who sold deadly batch withdraws sealed guilty plea agreement
LACONIA — A Northfield man withdrew his sealed guilty plea agreement in the case regarding him selling a lethal combination of heroin and fentanyl, causing the death of a 21-year-old Tilton man on Monday.
Brian Watson, 57, was originally scheduled to plead guilty Monday when his lawyer, Mark Sisti, learned new information he wanted to explore, according to The Laconia Daily Sun.
Watson is accused of selling Seth Tilton-Fogg heroin laced with fentanyl in April of 2015. Tilton-Fogg was found dead the next morning by his parents.
A man currently encarcerated in the Belknap County House of Correction awaiting trial for rape has made it known that he wants to speak to Sisti in regards to the case. Sisti needs approval from the court before he is granted permission to speak with the inmate.
While the terms of the plea agreement remain unknown to the general public, Sisti wanted that set aside until the Nadeau rape trial could be completed.
Without disclosing the former plea arrangement, Tilton-Fogg's father said that he would like to see Watson's sentence be longer than the 20 years.
