Danville police chief pleads not guilty in firearms case

PLAISTOW &#-; Danville Police Chief Wade Parsons has pleaded not guilty to a charge of negligent storage of firearms after he was accused of leaving a gun unsecured, later used by a teenager to commit suicide.

Parsons waived Monday&#';s arraignment in the 10th Circuit Court, Plaistow District Division, and is due back in court for a pre-trial conference Aug. 8.

Defense attorney Alan Cronheim entered the not guilty plea on Parsons&#'; behalf in a court filing last week.

Parsons, 54, is accused of leaving his Glock 22 .40-caliber handgun unsecured on top of a safe inside his home at 53 Caramel Drive, Danville, March 11.

While Parsons was away, authorities said his girlfriend&#';s 15-year-old son, Jacob Carver, accessed the firearm and shot himself. Rockingham County Attorney James Reams has said the shooting was a suicide.

The charge is a violation punishable by a fine of up to $1,000 and was brought after an investigation by New Hampshire State Police and a review by the County Attorney&#';s Office.
