NH sex offender to go to prison for chaperoning boy, 14, and not telling family of history


CONCORD, New Hampshire — A 70-year-old man convicted of breaching his sex offender registration requirements by looking after a teenager has been sentenced to 5 ½ years in prison.

The Concord Monitor reports ( Max Wilson of Antrim, is prohibited under state law from volunteering care, instruction or guidance of a minor. He was found guilty last year of felony counts of prohibition from child-care services.

Prosecutors say he cared for a 14-year-old boy in Concord and Hopkinton in January 2014.

Wilson agreed to mentor him after the death of his grandfather and did not disclose his criminal history to the family.

Wilson was sentenced Friday in Merrimack County Superior Court. He was ordered to complete sex offender treatment. He also must continue registering once he is released.
