Former NH Police Captain Sentenced to 12 Months

Hillsborough County Superior Court Judge Gillian Abramson sentenced retired Manchester police Capt. Michael Tessier to 12 months in the Hillsborough County jail after he pleaded guilty to two theft charges Wednesday.

Abramson said earlier she would order a hearing to determine whether Tessier should pay restitution in the theft cases.

Tessier will surrender to custody Monday at 2 p.m. to begin serving his sentence.

Tessier pleaded guilty to two counts of theft from trust funds of Thaddeus Jakobiec, a blind, disabled cousin whose trust Tessier was overseeing.

“I’m not persuaded at this point I understand it well enough to say no restitution is needed,” Abramson said.

Tessier’s lawyer said his client has repaid $230,000 in restitution already.

    It's tempting to take easy money, but as a cop, he should know better.
