Police Chief Resigns After Trying To Extort Nude Pictures From a Woman

New London’s police chief has resigned after a woman said he offered to drop charges against her in exchange for nude photographs, according to the New Hampshire attorney general’s office. The woman’s lawyer, who said she is a student at Colby Sawyer College, described the incident with former police chief David Seastrand as lasting several hours.

“There was an extended attempt to bargain away her criminal charges in exchange for her allowing herself to be photographed naked,” attorney Richard Lehmann said. “Obviously she refused, and frankly, it was a brave act for her to report this matter to the attorney general’s office.”
