MANCHESTER, NH – Leeland Eisenberg was returned to NH State Prison on Oct. 28 on technical parole violations related to a warrant issued Oct. 27 by Manchester Police for “false public alarm.”
Eisenberg served two years in prison after making national headlines following his arrest in 2007 for a bomb threat and hostage situation at Hillary Clinton’s campaign office in Rochester.
At his arraignment hearing Eisenberg was portrayed by his lawyer as “a man at the end of his rope emotionally” after being turned down repeatedly for psychiatric help.
He was released on probation in 2009, but his legal troubles continued following several probation violations, including failure to charge his monitoring bracelet, failing to take a mandatory Breathalyzer test, and cutting off his electronic monitoring bracelet. He was sentenced in 2010 to serve 3 ½ to 7 years for probation violations, but arrested again in 2013 for walking away from the Calumet House, a minimum security unit in Manchester.
Eisenberg was released on parole in December of 2014.
An arrest warrant was issued Oct. 27 for Eisenberg, whose address is listed as 295 Union Street, Manchester, for “false public alarm,” after he allegedly threatened to blow up several buildings in the city. Eisenberg has not been formally charged in that incident.
Jeffrey Lyons of the NH Department of Corrections confirmed on Nov. 2 that Eisenberg returned to the prison on Oct. 28. He said the parole board has 45 days to schedule a parole revocation hearing on the alleged parole violations.
