Paul Bennett

Felon Wins Selectman Spot

As WGME reports, Paul Bennett, who was convicted of manslaughter for killing his infant son 15 years ago, was elected as a town selectman in Topsham. Because of the controversy his election is causing, however, he says he plans to resign the post.

Al Diamon has more on how badly the Times Record messed up by not reporting this fact about the candidate before the election.

Update: Bennett has posted a statement on his website.
