KINGSTON, N.H. (AP) — A former New Hampshire lawmaker has filed plans to plead guilty to charges of drug possession and trying to lure a 14-year-old girl over Facebook into a sexual encounter.
A Rockingham County prosecutor said Friday that Kyle Tasker is to enter the plea May 9. Authorities say he tried to lure an undercover police officer, posing as the girl. They say he offered alcohol and marijuana and proposed sexual encounters.
The 31-year-old Tasker was scheduled for trial next month. His lawyer didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. The Nottingham Republican resigned in March 2016.
The prosecutor says Tasker would receive three to 10 years in prison under a negotiated sentence and can ask that six months be suspended off the minimum term if he completes a sex offender program.
