Adam Montgomery To Find Out How Many Decades He Will Serve In Prison
MANCHESTER, NH — Adam Montgomery, 33 will be sentenced to decades in the New Hampshire State Prison for Men when he faces a Hillsborough County Superior Court judge Monday.
In June, Montgomery was found guilty on six felony charges involving weapons charges unrelated to charges he faces concerning the murder of his daughter Harmony. At the time, he stood next to his defense attornies showing no emotion as jurors found him guilty of felony counts of being an armed career criminal, theft by unauthorized taking, and receiving stolen property
Montgomery was accused of stealing an AR-15 rifle and a 12-gauge shotgun in 2019 from people he knew and selling them to fund his drug addiction. The credibility of some witnesses who testified against him was continually brought up to the jurors in the trial. The witnesses, however, collectively corroborated that Montgomery was seen with the guns, holding them, and buying and selling them.
Paperwork filed in Hillsborough Superior Court Northern District lists recommendations from the prosecutors and defense that vary significantly.
Prosecutors were Montgomery to serve two back-to-back sentences that would each be 15 to 30 years for the armed career criminal charges.
They also will ask the court for an additional 7.5 - 15 years for the theft by unauthorized taking and receiving stolen property charges.
Montgomery's attorneys requested two back-to-back sentences of 10 to 20 years on the armed career criminal charges. They will ask for suspended sentences on the theft and possession of stolen property charges.
The defense will also ask for credit for the 1.5 years already spent at Hillsborough County House of Corrections while he awaited trial.
Once the sentencing is completed with Honorable Judge Amy Messer at 1:30 p.m. Monday, Montgomery will be transferred to the New Hampshire State Prison for Men, where he will begin serving his sentence.
Montgomery is also facing second-degree murder charges for the death of Harmony Montgomery.
The trial for the murder charges is scheduled to start later this year, with jury selection tentatively scheduled in November.
Updates will be released when available.
