Gov. Chris Sununu called for the resignation Thursday of Merrimack County Sheriff Scott Hilliard, who was found guilty this week of drunken driving.
“The sheriff has been convicted of a serious crime and should resign immediately,” the governor said in a statement.
Hilliard, who was sentenced to five days in jail, said Wednesday he and his lawyer are considering whether to appeal. On Tuesday, Nashua District Court Judge James Leary found Hilliard guilty of aggravated DWI and transportation of an alcoholic beverage.
