Judge finds man threatened transgender health club patron

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The attorney general's office says a man has been found guilty of violating the New Hampshire Civil Rights Act by repeatedly threatening to kill a transgender woman at a health club based on his belief that she shouldn't have used the women's locker room.

A judge issued an injunction Friday against Marc Bernier prohibiting him from contacting or coming within 250 feet of the targeted person. He also is prohibited from entering the Planet Fitness club in Nashua. The injunction lasts for a year.

Bernier also has to pay a fine.

A message for Bernier was left at a possible phone number.
