Judge rejects inmate’s bid for Somersworth man's work release

He was sentenced in July to two to four years in state prison in connection with calling in the threat on Dec. 4.
On Dec. 4, Long told a 911 dispatcher there were two pipes bombs in the courthouse that were going to explode between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Assistant County Attorney Brad Bolton said the county objected to the prison’s request to release Long, given his history of trying to dupe the court system in the past.
Long was serving a 12-month jail sentence at the time for violating the terms of his probation on forgery and theft convictions, according to court records. He called his wife from jail with instructions on how to create a letter so that it resembled one that came from an actual doctor who worked at Children’s Hospital in Boston.
At a hearing on Thursday, Long told the judge that he wanted to pay his restitution to the county and become self-sufficient before being released from prison.
Long pointed out that he had no incidents or disciplinary write-ups while in prison, and obtained his GED while incarcerated at the county jail.
