[NH] For the Record: Unrepentant, unapologetic Gubitosi



Judge Kathleen McGuire:
"What you did is a slap in the face to law enforcement. You have shown no remorse. And you have given no apology for what you have done."

Round and round it goes.
Where it stops,
nobody knows.

BRISTOL OFFICIALS MUM ON STALKING ALLEGATIONS

Carol Carter Union Leader
Patrolman Steve Gubitosi, hired by the Bristol Police Department in July, has apparently been placed on leave or restricted duty pending disposition of a restraining order sought by a former girlfriend... What is known is that [MR], in a statement filed Oct. 10 with Belknap County Sheriff's Department, said she had a relationship with Gubitosi from June 2000 until last April. Since ending the relationship, [MR] said Gubitosi has demonstrated escalating violence toward her. She said Gubitosi threatened her life, said he would commit suicide, cut phone lines, killed her cat, stole phone bills from her mailbox, drove down her street without headlights, smashed her car windows, let air out of her tires, spray-painted a profane word on her office, "keyed" her car, harassed her mother and friends with phone calls, and spray-painted the car of her "significant other, [BK]" in a Manchester apartment complex parking lot. [MR], 42, said she also suspects Gubitosi of jamming her apartment buzzer with toothpicks on two occasions and said he repeatedly calls between midnight and 5 a.m., using a disguised voice to leave "threatening and vulgar" messages. "An escalating pattern is developing. It is my feeling that Steve is unstable and capable of causing physical harm, perhaps as he did to my cat and to my apartment," said [MR] in her statement. On Oct. 11, [MR] obtained a temporary restraining order from Manchester District Court... [Police Chief Barry Wingate] Wingate said he is aware of the restraining order, but that Gubitosi hasn't been convicted of any crime. "There are domestic violence and stalking cases every day in New Hampshire, but the newspaper doesn't published every one of them"... William McChesney, Bristol's town administrator, said he was unaware of the issue... Police Commissioner Carroll Brown also declined comment. "I have nothing to say about it. I haven't discussed this with Barry (Wingate)"... Pembroke Police Chief Wayne Cheney said Gubitosi worked for his department for 18 years, from 1983 until Nov. 1, 2001, when he resigned. Cheney declined comment about Gubitosi's career of almost two decades...

EX-POLICE OFFICER DENIES HARASSMENT
New Hampshire Union Leader
December 31, 2002
Former Pembroke and Bristol police officer Steve Gubitosi returned to the witness chair last week and continued to deny allegations that he harassed or threatened his former girlfriend... The former police officer did not sit through a tape of telephone calls to [MR]. Instead, Gubitosi left the courtroom as the tape began to play and periodically re-entered and left the room as Judge John Emery, [MR], her attorney, Nicholas Brodich, and defense lawyer William Egge followed transcripts of the calls. "This is emotionally distressing (to Gubitosi)," Egge told the judge... He [Gubitosi] denied threatening suicide... He said [MR] misinterpreted his calls and that she shouldn't have reported the alleged suicide threat to a Concord police officer because it jeopardized his new job. When [MR]'s attorney asked why Gubitosi continued to call [MR] after being told by the Concord officer to cease all contact, Gubitosi said he had no choice but to try and get [MR] to go back to the Concord police to "straighten out" the situation...

A former police officer convicted of stalking his former girlfriend may face additional charges of harassing and stalking the same victim. Yesterday, the state Supreme Court said prosecutors were not guilty of misconduct or bad faith when they obtained a search warrant for the suspect's cell phone records, even though they had been suppressed as evidence. That means that Steven Gubitosi, 43, of 201 Center Hill Road, Epsom, could be tried in Merrimack County Superior Court on four counts of harassment and three counts of stalking... In Merrimack County, court papers allege Gubitosi once phoned the woman more than 50 times in four hours. In at least one message, he allegedly threatened her and called her a "whore." In yesterday's ruling, the state's highest court said the cell phone records should not have been suppressed as evidence and that prosecutors should not have been sanctioned for seeking a warrant through a lower court.

The state Supreme Court upheld a Belknap County Superior Court conviction of a former police officer for stalking his ex-girlfriend yesterday... In the majority opinion, justice James Duggan argued that "the defendant does not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in information concerning his cellular telephone calls that was recorded for billing purposes and retained by US Cellular in the ordinary course of its business"... Prosecutors used Gubitosi 's cell phone records to show that he called Zack's Lakeside Restaurant in Tilton the night of Sept. 19, 2002... But the release of Gubitosi 's cell phone records without a warrant is grounds for a new trial... Gubitosi was convicted of stalking in Belknap Superior Court in December 2003, and sentenced to one year in county jail, with six months suspended. That same day, Gubitosi was charged with sexual assault in Manchester. That case never came to trial. Last month, Gubitosi was convicted of four counts of stalking and harassment in Merrimack Superior Court...

Wednesday, November 23, 2005
The former Pembroke policeman convicted of stalking his ex-girlfriend got an additional year in jail yesterday, after a judge doubled the time a prosecutor requested. Steven Gubitosi , 44, is already serving a six-month sentence in Belknap County jail for stalking the woman. Yesterday, he was in Merrimack County Superior Court to answer additional stalking charges. Prosecutor Wayne Coull of the Belknap County Attorney's office asked Judge Kathleen McGuire to give Gubitosi six months in jail plus 18 additional months suspended for the Merrimack County charges. Coull said the threat of the 18 months would hopefully keep Gubitosi from continuing to harass and threaten his ex-girlfriend after he served his time... [Judge Kathleen] McGuire rejected Coull's proposed sentence and instead gave Gubitosi a year in a jail plus a year of suspended time. She said he should have known better, especially given his training as a police officer . "What you did is a slap in the face to law enforcement,"McGuire said. "You have shown no remorse. And you have given no apology for what you have done."

    What about the Londonderry Police Officer JASON M. ARCHAMBAULT who was arrested on domestic abuse assault charges this year in Manchester, yet he is still on the force.

    The problem there is that the Chief of the LPD Hart is more corrupt than his cops.
