Two second-time offenders appear in Manchester Circuit Court

Susan Lombard and Elizabeth Freitas both appeared in Manchester District Circuit Court on Monday, according to The Union Leader's Crime Watch report. The two women have both had prior run-ins with the law: Lombard was accused of simple assault in 2011, and Freitas was charged with shoplifting in 2008.

Lombard was in court after she allegedly contacted the victim in her assault case to ask them for a ride to her court appearance on Monday, according to the report. The victim, a male with whom she had shared an apartment, must have petitioned for a restraining order against the 45-year-old Manchester resident, because Lombard was arrested and charged with stalking following the phone call. She pleaded not guilty to the charge, and her trial date for both the assault and stalking charges was set for February 28.

The source said that Freitas appeared in court for sentencing after being convicted of theft. She had pleaded guilty to stealing unspecified merchandise from a Manchester JCPenney on November 26. She had previously been convicted of theft following a July 17, 2008 incident. The judge hearing her case offered a stern reprimand, but ultimately chose to spare her from jail time.

"Stealing is stealing. Keep your hands off other people's property," Judge Gregory Michael advised.

Ultimately, due to Freitas's good behavior over three years, her fine was reduced to $200 and her jail time was suspended.

However, if you have been accused of a crime like theft or simple assault, you can't count on a judge to be merciful. It's always advisable to consult an experienced New Hampshire lawyer. These professionals can review your case and defend you in court.
