Mass. man pleads guilty to disobeying Gilford police officer after Sat. arrest

LACONIA — A Waltham, Mass., man pleaded guilty yesterday to one count of disobeying an officer after he gave false information to a Gilford Police officer who was trying to arrest him Saturday night.

Fourth Circuit Court Judge James Carroll sentenced Jeffrey Redfern, 43, of 63 Plymtom St. to serve 30 days in the Belknap County House of Corrections with all of it suspended and to pay a $1,000 fine with $500 of it suspended. A $120 fee was added to the $500 fine.

Carroll gave Redfern until July to pay the fine.

According to the complaint, Redfern was wanted on a bench warrant, but when police went to 366 Old Lakeshore Road where he was staying, he gave them a false name, Social Security number and initially refused to come out of the trailer.

He was wanted on a bench warrant out of Littleton.
