Dartmouth student indicted over sex assault allegations
HAVERHILL — A Dartmouth College student from the United Kingdom has pleaded not guilty to seven counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault against a fellow-student three months ago in her dormitory room in Hanover.
A Grafton County Superior Court grand jury during its July session indicted Parker C. Gilbert, 20, of London on the seven Class A special felonies. A conviction carries up to 20 years in prison on each count.
Gilbert, whose most recent local address is in New London, is accused of repeated incidents of overcoming the alleged victim “through the actual application of physical force, physical violence or superior physical strength” on May 2, according to the indictments which also state that the woman “indicated by speech or conduct that she did not freely consent” to the various sex acts Gilbert is accused of committing.
Gilbert waived an arraignment hearing this week and entered the not guilty pleas.
In other indictments the grand jury handed up during its July session at the North Haverhill court:
• Gregory M. Maggi, 32, of 12 Avery St., Holderness, was charged with 11 counts of prohibited computer pornography on Jan. 8 in Ashland.
Maggi is accused of having or controlling visual representations of children “engaging in sexually explicit conduct,” according to the indictments. The charges are Class B felonies.
• Donald S. Hamel, 72, of 16 Riverside Parkway, Lebanon, was charged with four counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault and four counts of “pattern” sexual assault — all special felonies — at various times between Jan. 1, 2000, and May 9, 2013, in Lebanon.
“Pattern” sexual assault is defined in the indictments as an offense that occurs on “more than one occasion over a period of two months or more and within a period of five years upon a person younger than 16 years of age who is not a spouse” of the accused.
• Timothy Cayer, 22, of 103 Gulf Road, Sanbornton, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child between Dec. 1 and Dec. 12, 2012, in Bristol. Cayer is accused of soliciting a child under the age of 16 to “engage in sexual penetration” with a third person. The charge is a Class B felony.
• Perry N. Sarantopoulos, 46, of 70 Spencer St., Lebanon, was charged with two counts of first-degree assault and with being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon on May 1 in Lebanon.
Sarantopoulos is accused of using “nunchucks” to strike David Gray in the head, and also using them to strike Dana McGranahan in the head, causing cuts to both of them. First-degree assault is a Class A felony, being a felon in possession of a deadly weapon is a Class B felony.
