Supreme Court hears CopBlock founders appeal of felony conviction for recording public officials
Adam "Ademo Freeman" Mueller was charged with violating the law by not obtaining the consent of a police officer, the former principal of Manchester High School West and a school secretary when he recorded their conversations about an incident involving a school resource officer and a student and posted portions of it on the website.
Mueller posted portions of the recorded conversations on the website, along with video of a student being grabbed by the resource officer, pushed face down on a cafeteria table and handcuffed.
Mueller, who has apparently relocated to the Laconia area, judging by a recent blog on the CopBlock website, did not attend the appeal session.
At Mueller's request, Judge Kenneth Brown sentenced him on the spot, to one to four years in jail, with all but three months suspended for five years of good behavior.
Ross Wednesday said Mueller wasn't experienced enough to seek to have included in the judge's instructions to the jury that they could acquit Mueller if they found he believed what he did was legal.
Assistant Attorney General Lisa Wolford, who represented the state, said she was surprised, as were the justices, that Ross conceded Mueller was correctly charged with felony wiretapping. He had earlier maintained that it should have been a misdemeanor charge.
Mueller had earlier been convicted in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division of two resisting arrest charges in connection with a June 2011 incident in which anti-police signs were chalked on the police department building on Chestnut Street. In January 2012, he was sentenced to 12 months in jail with 10 months suspended.
