    Ex-NH Police Officer Gets Jail Sentence in Illegal Search Case

    A former New Hampshire police officer has been sentenced to 90 days in jail in connection to what prosecutors called an illegal search of a convicted felon's bedroom.

    Ian Kibbe pleaded guilty in December to misdemeanor charges of unsworn falsification and obstructing government administration. The 31-year-old previously faced felony counts of conspiracy to commit perjury and attempted perjury after the search turned up weapons.

    Kibbe was sentenced Monday in Sullivan County Superior Court to three months behind bars and another nine months suspended for the unsworn falsification charge. He was given a 12-month suspended sentence on the government obstruction charge. He agreed not to seek a law enforcement job in New Hampshire.
