BOSTON - Defense attorneys filed an appeal Friday in U.S. 1st District Court of James Tobin's conviction in a scheme to jam New Hampshire Democrats' get-out-the-vote phone lines four years ago.
Attorneys for Tobin, 45, of Bangor argued in their 59-page brief that the telephone harassment statute should not have been used to prosecute him and three others. The attorneys also argued that the way the statute was used to prosecute Tobin violated the U.S. Constitution.
