Manchester man convicted of threatening to kill Derry judge over child custody ruling
Gregory Gifford, 48, was convicted of three counts of threats to a government official for sending threatening e-mails to Derry police promising to kill Judge Paul Moore. One e-mail said that "Judge Moore is a dead man for kidnapping my son without due process."
The threatening e-mails were sent Oct. 25, 2012, and were followed up with similar messages to Gov. John Lynch's Office of Citizen Services, including one that read, "I am going to start killing people. Ask Judge Moore how many people have to die before I get my due process."
Gifford called the 10th Circuit Court in Derry, and told clerk Brenda Santos, "Put Paul Moore on the (expletive) phone. I will kill Paul Moore. He is a dead (expletive)," according to Agati.
"They haven't proved the case beyond a reasonable doubt," Gifford said. "There is some damaging evidence ... but no evidence I actually had a phone."
Judge Kenneth McHugh ordered that Gifford remain held at the Rockingham County jail while he awaits sentencing. Gifford faces up to 7 ½ to 15 years in prison on each of the charges.
