Court hearing set for today

“Those are things that shouldn’t happen,” Coyle said. “If you don’t fill out the application for it, you don’t get it.”

Ramsdell defended Reams’ overall work as county attorney. He also defended him against reports that female attorneys in the office complained to Rep. Laura Pantelakos, D-Portsmouth, a year ago that they were not being treated fairly. Pantelakos has not returned calls seeking comment.

Ramsdell said the majority of attorneys in the office are women, including two of three team leaders.

Reams is the chief prosecutor in Rockingham County, which includes coastal communities from Seabrook to Portsmouth and dozens of other towns in eastern New Hampshire.
