The Gilford Controversy Heats Up

There are new developments between Mr. William Baer and the Gilford School Board. Mr. Baer recently hired a high-powered criminal defense attorney to handle his disorderly conduct charge. This situation won’t be settling down anytime soon and we will continue to keep you informed. More details are available in this Union Leader article.

In May Mr. Baer was arrested when he did not follow the Gilford School Board’s two-minute time limit when addressing them about a controversial book, “Nineteen Minutes,” that was assigned to his daughter’s ninth grade Honors English class. The school board admitted they failed to follow proper parental notification protocol. It was also in violation of state law,¬†RSA 186:11¬†section IX-C.

For more background, read my article from last week.

Mr. Baer will be arraigned June 17th.
