NH gunpowder plant owner appealing sentence

Posted: Updated:

LANCASTER, N.H. (AP) - A gunpowder plant owner sentenced to at least a decade in prison over a 2010 explosion that killed two workers in New Hampshire is planning an appeal.

Craig Sanborn of Maidstone, Vt., was convicted in October of manslaughter in the explosion at the Black Mag plant in Colebrook, which killed Donald Kendall and Jesse Kennett.

The Caledonian Record reports records at Coos County Superior Court show the 64-year-old Sanborn filed a notice to appeal the conviction. And in a separate case in federal court, recent filings show he intends to take a felony wire fraud charge to trial in Maine, where he opened a munitions plant.

Sanborn's lawyer said his client was out of town and noted the explosion could have been caused by employee error or other scenarios.
