    Seabrook police officer faces trial in alleged brutality video case


    One of three Seabrook police officers investigated after a YouTube video showed alleged brutality against a teenager at the police station could face a maximum of two to five years in state prison. Officer Mark Richardson has been indicted by a Rockingham County grand jury on one count of felony simple assault. Senior Assistant Attorney General Jane Young said the charge carries an enhanced penalty because Richardson was on duty when he allegedly slammed Michael Bergeron Jr., of Seabrook, then 19, head-first into a concrete wall on Nov. 11, 2009.

    All three officers were shown in the video, but Young said charges were only pursued against Richardson and Laurent because they were the ones "who appeared to have taken action" during the alleged assault. The grand jury chose not to indict Laurent, however, and Young said he "will not face a criminal charge" for allegedly using oleoresin capsicum, commonly referred to as pepper spray, to subdue Bergeron during the incident.

    police brutality in seabrook police station

    Published on Jan 6, 2014

    charged with a dwi and tried explaining that I wasn't drunk and they could be out catching actual criminals. then after being in the cell for a while waiing for a bail bonds man I was taken out and brought in the booking room to call for a ride. after calling a ride I was told I could take my phone that I called from and my wallet. as soon as I greabbed my wallet from the table he officer with the glasses came at me saying he never told me I could take my stuff and choked me against the wall then tried to grab the wallet from my pocket. once he got the wallet and my phone this is what happened. there was no lawsuit made due to the fact I found a lawyer and the lawyer took the tapes and disappeared for 2 years until I finally tracked him down and go it back but now I think its to late to do anything with it even though I have a permanent lump on the back of my head chipped teeth and brain injuries but talking to a lawyer soon well see what happens.
