Former Plainfield resident resentenced to 300 months in prison


Date: September 29, 2020


Concord – Edward Brown formerly of Plainfield, was sentenced to serve 300 months in federal prison at a resentencing hearing.

In 2009, Brown was convicted of a series of offenses arising from his role in leading an armed standoff with the United Marshals Service after his conviction and sentencing for tax-related charges. Brown was initially sentenced to 444 months of imprisonment for his role in the standoff. Because of new legal precedent from the United States Supreme Court, one of Brown's convictions was no longer valid. Brown was therefore entitled to resentencing.

At the resentencing hearing today, United States District Judge George Singal, the original trial judge, imposed a 300-month sentence.

This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation, the United States Marshals Service, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the New Hampshire State Police, the Plainfield Police Department, the Lebanon Police Department, and the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office.
