A former sexual assault investigator is suing the Merrimack County Attorney, alleging she created a hostile work environment.

Jennifer Adams filed a civil suit on Wednesday in Superior Court, naming both Robin Davis, who was elected county attorney as a write-in candidate last year, as well as Merrimack County as defendants.

“This case is about an abuse of power,” reads the opening lines of the lawsuit, as well as an attempt to “humiliate” Adams in her place of work.

A new bail reform law designed to prevent poor people from sitting in jail for not being able to post bail is now being implemented in New Hampshire courts.

Some county attorneys and others in law enforcement were skeptical of the new law, Senate Bill 556, and now some are saying the roll-out has been rocky.

NHPR's Peter Biello spoke with Rockingham County Attorney Patricia Conway about how the bill is affecting her office. Listen to the interview here.

On Tuesday, thousands of New Hampshire voters will fill in a bubble way down the ballot - under “County Attorney.” But who are they voting for, and what does the job entail?  Few seem to know.
