The New England Society of Newspaper Editors chose Mike Donoghue for his investigative series into a Vermont State Police sergeant.

BOSTON (AP) _ The New England Society of Newspaper Editors has named a veteran Burlington (Vt.) Free Press reporter the winner of the 2013 Sevellon Brown AP New England Journalist of the Year award.

NESNE chose Mike Donoghue for his investigative series into a Vermont State Police sergeant who was later convicted of faking hundreds of hours on timecards and writing about 1,000 bogus tickets.

William J. Kole, New England bureau chief for The Associated Press and NESNE president, says Donoghue ``was relentless on this important story, and we're pleased to recognize his tireless work with this inaugural award.''

Donoghue will be honored at NESNE's annual conference on Oct. 10 in Natick, Mass.

The award is named for Sevellon Brown, the late editor and publisher of The Providence Journal-Bulletin and founder of the American Press Institute.
