Maine Lawyer Arrested For Registration Fraud

  Court Watch  -   POSTED: 2007/04/16 14:39

PORTSMOUTH - A local attorney was arrested Friday on four charges alleging he used the address of his downtown law office to register three cars, in spite of living in Kittery, Maine.

According to Katie Daley, spokeswoman for the New Hampshire Highway Patrol, Richard Foley, 53, was charged at the Newington Police Department on three felony counts of title fraud.

If convicted, according to Daley, Foley could be sentenced to a maximum of seven years in prison. The convictions could also be punishable by a maximum $4,000 fine for each of the four felony counts.

Foley was also arrested on a misdemeanor count of tampering with public records, punishable by up to one year in prison and a $1,200 fine.

The Division of Motor Vehicles Highway Patrol reports that Foley's arrest followed a two-month investigation. That investigation, according to the state, was based on information that Foley was using his 414 State St. law office to claim New Hampshire residency for the purpose of registering and titling three of his own vehicles.

Daley said the state is not releasing the attorney's Kittery street address.

Automobiles registered in New Hampshire are not subject to an excise tax, as is the case in Maine, where auto insurance is also mandated. The amount of the Maine tax is determined by the age of the vehicle and the suggested retail price.

Following his arrest, Foley was released on $4,000 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to be arraigned May 23 in Portsmouth District Court.
