Wire Fraud Trial Continues In Bangor

Updated 5 months ago

BANGOR, Maine (AP) — Prosecutors say the wire fraud trial of a Vermont man convicted for the 2010 explosion that killed two workers at a New Hampshire gunpowder plant will take at least one more day in Maine.

Craig Sanborn’s trial resumed in Bangor on Tuesday. A spokesman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office said the trial is likely to last until at least Thursday.

Federal prosecutors say Sanborn submitted $300,000 worth of false invoices to Brownville, Maine, officials for materials and services he never purchased between November 2005 and January 2008 in connection to an ammunition plant in Maine.

Sanborn was convicted in October of two counts of negligent homicide and manslaughter in connection with the May 2010 explosion that killed 49-year-old Jesse Kennett and 56-year-old Donald Kendall.
