Tobin Faces New Charges 

James Tobin has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Portland on two counts of making false statements to an FBI agent in 2003. Each count carries jail time.

The indictment is the latest twist in the case of Tobin, whose conviction in the New Hampshire phone-jamming incident was overturned last year.

He was accused of helping arrange more than 800 hang-up calls that jammed get-out-the-vote phone lines set up by the New Hampshire Democratic Party and the Manchester, N.H., firefighters’ union for about two hours.
