Epsom man convicted of bank robbery faces more charges

On Thursday, the second trial for Chris Pickering in connection with a bank robbery began at the Rockingham County Superior Court, according to The Union Leader. The Epsom, New Hampshire, man is already serving an 11-year sentence, but will now face allegations that he injured a police officer during the pursuit that followed the theft.

The robbery of the Bank of New England in Windham occurred three years ago and set off a high-speed chase on Interstate 93 that crossed just over the state border. Pickering was allegedly the driver of the vehicle, which clipped Officer Jason Dzierlatka as he attempted to lay down a tire puncture trap on the highway.

Dzierlatka's foot was broken in the incident, and he reportedly received several skin grafts and surgeries as part of his treatment.

Pickering and his alleged partner, Patrick McKeen, were caught by police when the car was involved in a separate collision after grazing the officer.

The newspaper reported that Pickering and his lawyers would present evidence from an accident reconstruction specialist during the trial. The defense wished to have McKeen, who is also serving a prison sentence for the robbery, testify, but the judge in the case refused to allow it.

Prosecutors, on the other hand, will be able to present evidence in connection with the bank robbery during the trial.

If Pickering is convicted on the charges brought by the police department, he could face more jail time.

If you have been accused of a crime in the Granite State, an experienced New Hampshire criminal lawyer can argue your case in court and ensure that your evidence is considered fairly.
