Escaped Sex Offender Sought by U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force

Concord, NH – The U.S. Marshals – NH Joint Fugitive Task Force is seeking the public’s assistance in locating fugitive sex offender Brandon Scott Legere, age 32, whose last known address was at the Hampshire House, a federal half-way house located on Elm Street in Manchester, NH. Legere is a registered sex offender that was serving part of a federal sentence for violations of supervised release, stemming from his original conviction and sentence for conspiracy to distribute cocaine. Legere is required to register as a sex offender based on a prior conviction for felonious sexual assault on a child under the age of sixteen but older than thirteen, with an age difference of more than three years.

On Wednesday evening, Legere fled the half-way house after being confronted regarding violations of the rules. Legere was last seen running down Elm Street towards Orange Street, wearing a white T-shirt, jeans, and predominantly white sneakers.

Brandon Legere is a white male, 5’11”, 175 pounds, with very short, shaven brown hair, brown eyes and a thin brown beard. Legere has several tattoos, including; Left Forearm – “LOYALTY”, Right Forearm – “RESPECT”, Upper Back – “ITALIAN PRIDE”, Mid Back – “RIP JML” with a cross, Chest – “THUG LIFE” with a bullet hole, and on his Right Chest – “LA FAMILIA” with an Italian family crest.

Legere could be hiding anywhere in the Manchester, or Greenville, NH area, where he is known to have friends and family. We are hopeful that someone will provide information as to the location of Legere. If you know of the whereabouts or have observed a person that resembles Legere, please contact the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force in New Hampshire at (603) 225-1632, send a WEB-TIP, text NHTIP with any information to TIP411, or contact your local police.

Since the inception of the New Hampshire Joint Fugitive Task Force in 2002, these partnerships have resulted in over 5,523 arrests. These arrests have ranged in seriousness from murder, assault, unregistered sex offenders, probation and parole violations and numerous other serious offenses. Nationally the United States Marshals Service fugitive programs are carried out with local law enforcement in 94 district offices, 85 local fugitive task forces, 7 regional task forces, as well as a growing network of offices in foreign countries.
