NH Sen. Bradley Statement on Stephen Coco Returning to Jail 

Concord, NH – Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley released the following statement today concerning Judge Gillian Abramson’s ruling to return former Manchester police officer Stephen Coco to jail:

 

“The law that Hillsborough County Corrections Superintendent relied on to release Stephen Coco has been on the books since 1971.  The changes we made during the 2013 session strengthened the law’s oversight protections to ensure prosecutors have the opportunity to call for a judicial review in cases where they believe the superintendent’s decision may be inappropriate. 

 

“That is exactly what happened in this case, and I applaud Judge Abramson for her ruling which sends Stephen Coco back to jail to continue serving his sentence.”
