FARMINGTON, Maine — A New Hampshire man convicted of murder in that state in 1984 was found guilty Wednesday of violating an interstate compact for adult supervision.
Barry Brown, 50, of Raymond, N.H., was sentenced to 50 days in jail and given credit for the time he served since his arrest on Aug. 21 in Chesterville, according to court documents.
Brown is now required to return to New Hampshire and report to his parole officer.
Brown was arrested on the misdemeanor charge after Franklin County Sheriff’s Department detectives and a Maine Probation and Parole officer went to Horseshoe Pond Road in Chesterville to determine if it was a place Brown could stay if he had permission to move to Maine.
Brown was found at the residence and he had not received the proper authorization to leave New Hampshire, where he was on parole.
Brown had applied to the New Hampshire parole department to move to Maine but had not received the permission to do so at the time of his arrest, Franklin County Sheriff Scott Nichols Sr. said previously.
Transferring parole between the two states had not been done when Brown moved to Maine, Nichols said.
Brown received a sentence of 20 to 99 years on a conviction of second degree murder on Nov. 19, 1984, according to the New Hampshire Department of Records Office. His minimum time served would have been up in 2004. He has been been back three times for parole violations since he was released, an office representative previously said.
Nichols said Brown had served 24 to 26 years.
He is on parole for life.
