A murderer from Littleton is burning through attorneys in a bid to withdraw his guilty plea. Damion Yeargle, 27, who pleaded guilty in 2018 to gunning down a police informant in May 2016, is now seeking to represent himself after accusing his most recent attorney of not working fast enough for him, according to recent case filings at Grafton Superior Court. On Aug. 5, Yeargle, who is serving a sentence of 36 to 72 years at the New Hampshire State Prison in Concord, filed a hand-written motion reminding the court that in April he filed a motion to compel Don Topham, his court-appointed attorney who began representing him in May 2021, to return the six thumb drives of case documents he had sent to Topham in his effort to withdraw his guilty plea.
