On May 2, 51-year-old Todd Gordon of Dracut, Mass. turned himself in to the Manchester Police Department on a warrant stemming from an incident at the Hillsborough County House of Corrections earlier this year.

On Feb. 6, 2023, Manchester Police were notified by the Hillsborough County Department of
Corrections that there was an allegation of staff misconduct at the jail. The incident reportedly took place
on Jan. 31, 2023. The DOC requested that Manchester Police look into the matter, and a criminal
investigation immediately began.

Detectives learned that a former jail inmate alleged that he was assaulted by a Corrections Officer while
preparing for transport to the NH State Prison.

During the investigation, police identified the Corrections Officer as Lieutenant Todd Gordon and
established probable cause to issue a warrant for his arrest. Gordon was charged with two counts of
Second Degree Assault (felony), Witness Tampering (felony), and Criminal Threatening.
Gordon was released on $1,500 PR bail and is scheduled for arraignment on May 26, 2023.
