Addison Defense Gets $134,000


According to a recent Associated Press report, defense counsel representing the man who allegedly killed a Manchester police officer last year will receive more than $134,542 from the State to prepare the case. The state’s Judicial Council sought the funds with the justification of providing Michael Addison an “adequate defense.”  Addison is charged with capital murder and could be executed if convicted.


The Executive Council approved the funds to pay for Addison’s legal representation by the Office of the Public Defender.


Chris Keating, director of the Office of Public Defender, said in the article that providing for an adequate defense is constitutionally mandated. “The state of New Hampshire wants to execute one of our clients. It’s serious business.”
