NH judge refuses to suspend sentence for former Mass. cop
Brendan Bisbee, 37, will have to spend another year behind bars before he can apply to be paroled from his two- to four-year prison term.
She faced charges that she had set up her ex-husband, Jeffrey, and had him jailed on false charges that she reported to East Kingston police while they were going through a bitter divorce.
She was found dead in her prison cell on Dec. 28, 2011, the same day the state Supreme Court upheld her conviction of falsifying physical evidence.
Defense lawyer Adam Bernstein said that his client has been a model inmate and was recently designated to live in a halfway house as part of work release. Bisbee was not able to participate in work release because his parole plan is to Massachusetts and work for his wife, who has owned a hair salon for the last 20 years.
