Concord, NH – Attorney General John M. Formella announces that, Richard Rosen, age 85, of Belmont, Massachusetts, has been convicted on one felony count of wrongful voting related to voting twice in the November 8, 2016 General Election.

 Rosen is the businessman who is building a commercial greenhouse complex in Berlin.

After three days of trial, the jury returned a verdict of guilty on the charge of RSA 659:34-a, Voting in More Than One State Prohibited, a Class B Felony. The jury found that Mr. Rosen knowingly checked in at the checklist at the Belmont, Massachusetts polling place and cast a Massachusetts ballot after having already cast an absentee ballot in the same election in Holderness, New Hampshire.

“I extend my sincere thanks to the trial team and election officials in both Holderness, New Hampshire and Belmont, Massachusetts for their assistance and cooperation in the investigation and securing this conviction,” said Attorney General Formella. “The Department of Justice will continue to hold accountable those individuals who commit voter fraud and attempt to take advantage of our election systems.”

Mr. Rosen will be sentenced in July on a date and time to be determined by the Grafton Superior Court in Haverhill, New Hampshire.

This case was prosecuted by Senior Assistant Attorney General Myles Matteson and Assistant Attorney General Matthew Conley with assistance from local election officials in Belmont, Massachusetts and Holderness, New Hampshire. The case was investigated by Department of Justice Chief Investigator Richard Tracy.
