Reckless OHRV Operator Sentenced
NEW HAMPTON, N.H. -- On February 25, 2013, Brian Huckins Jr., age 22, of Warren, N.H., was convicted in the Grafton County Superior Court of Aggravated Driving Under the Influence and Reckless Conduct of an OHRV.
This conviction stems from an OHRV accident that occurred on April 1, 2012, at the Route 118 Campground in Warren. Huckins was the operator of a John Deere Gator that struck an outbuilding at the campground and, as result, the victim Travis Wescott suffered serious injuries.
As a result of a plea agreement, Huckins was sentenced to 360 days in the House of Corrections, given a two-year suspension of his privilege to operate a motor vehicle; fined $2,480; and ordered to pay restitution for the victim’s medical expenses.
The case was investigated by Conservation Officers from the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and prosecuted by John J. Bell, Assistant County Attorney for Grafton County. According to Bell, "N.H. Fish and Game did an outstanding job in moving so quickly and thoroughly to investigate this tragedy under a great deal of time pressure."
