CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Supreme Court has sent the case of a man found guilty of breaching his sex offender registration requirements back to a trial judge to vacate most of his convictions and sentence.

Max Wilson, of Antrim, was sentenced to 5 ½ years in prison in 2015. He was looking after a teenager. State law prohibits registered sex offenders from volunteering care, instruction or guidance of a minor. He was found guilty of four counts of prohibition from child-care services.

The court said in a ruling Tuesday a judge was wrong to rule against a defense motion alleging double jeopardy and sent the case back.

Wilson had cared for the boy in Concord and Hopkinton in 2014. He agreed to mentor him after the death of his grandfather and didn’t disclose his criminal history to the family.
