Prosecutor: Former NH lawmaker back online after sex case sentence

Kyle Tasker

BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) Prosecutors allege that a former New Hampshire lawmaker who served jail time on charges of drug possession and trying to lure a 14-year-old girl over Facebook into a sexual encounter was back online after his release, trying to communicate with the girl's friend.

Kyle Tasker pleaded guilty in 2017 and spent about two years in jail. He was granted work release in March. The 34-year-old Nottingham Republican resigned in 2016.

The Concord Monitor reports a prosecutor's motion asks a judge to impose a six-month suspended sentence. It alleges that Tasker gained access to the internet in violation of his sentence conditions. They say he asked his mother to manage his Facebook account and sent a friend request to a girl who knew the victim.

Tasker's lawyer said he didn't go online. He asked for a hearing.
