Jailed Danville man convicted for impersonating public defender
Defense lawyer Stephen White argued for a suspended sentence, claiming no law had been broken because the New Hampshire Bar Association identification number was not protected information like a social security number.
Bouraphael was being held at the Rockingham County jail last June 1, awaiting trial on drug charges, when he used a three-way call allegedly set up by his girlfriend to speak with inmate Jacob Palo about who else inside the jail owed them commissary, according to investigators.
A Rockingham County corrections officer later discovered Bouraphael’s call by reviewing recordings of outgoing jail calls.
A portion of Bouraphael’s phone call to the Merrimack County jail was played in court on Wednesday, demonstrating how he easily tricked two corrections officers.
Assistant County Attorney Michael Zaino argued for a 2 to 4 year prison sentence, saying that others considering a similar ruse should be warned by Bouraphael’s punishment.
“Within a matter of minutes, he was on the phone with another inmate,” Zaino said.
