NH Supreme Court upholds convictions in pollution case

The Eagle-Tribune

---- — CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Supreme Court is affirming three misdemeanor convictions of a Concord developer and operator of a junk removal business who has a long history of environmental violations.

The court sustained the convictions of Kevin Guay — who has properties on Clinton Street and Villanova Drive in Concord.

He was convicted of two counts of unlawful operation of a solid waste facility and one count of unlawful maintenance of a septic system.

Investigators unearthed a 275-gallon home heating oil tank, furniture, a hot tub and paint cans at the Villanova Drive property.

At the Clinton Street property, investigators found a hose over a septic system funneling human waste toward the Turkey River.

The court rejected Guay’s claims of trial error.

Guay’s lawyer did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
