1 min read

CONCORD — Former Concord Police Officer Michael Kosa has pleaded guilty to two class B misdemeanors for violating the Driver Privacy Act, according to court documents.

Kosa was found guilty of querying the name and birth date of an individual he knew through the State Police Online Telecommunication System (SPOTS) and using information obtained from the Department of Safety-Division of Motor Vehicle (DMV) records for a non-law enforcement purpose.

As part of his plea agreement, Kosa was fined $1,200 for each offense, with all but $500 suspended for two years. He has also agreed to resign from the Concord Police Department, surrender his New Hampshire Law Enforcement Certification, and not seek further employment in law enforcement.

If Kosa violates any of the conditions within two years, the State reserves the right to bring forward additional charges and seek to impose the suspended portion of his sentence.

The case was investigated and prosecuted by members of the Attorney General Office’s Public Integrity Unit, with assistance from Concord Police Department and the New Hampshire State Police.
