BRENTWOOD – A Hooksett man with a criminal history of posing as a mentally disabled man to fulfill a diaper-changing fetish has solicited three more home care businesses since being released from jail in April, according to a probation report.

His latest alleged solicitation happened last Thursday.

Eric Carrier went to the home of a New Boston woman who advertised a child care business on Craigslist pretending to be a mentally impaired man, according to probation and parole officials.

Carrier is now expected to face a judge in Rockingham County Superior Court, where a suspended two-to-four-year prison term could be imposed for a similar case he was convicted of in Hampton.

Details about Carrier's latest alleged solicitations in Manchester, Auburn and New Boston were filed with a judge on Tuesday.

"This is the same (modus operandi) that he had displayed in his earlier convictions," Norman Marquis, a probation and parole officer told a judge on Tuesday. "And it is this officer's grave concern that he is becoming an increasingly significant risk to public safety in his current condition."

Carrier pleaded guilty to a felony count of indecent exposure on April 30 and received a suspended prison sentence after spending 220 days in county jail.

He solicited a home care worker in Hampton on Sept. 12 by first posing as a father seeking care for his mentally disabled adult son. Carrier then met up with the woman claiming to be the disabled son, and asked her to change his diaper.

Marquis and police have been dealing with Carrier since June 2011, when he was first arrested in Hooksett for posing as a younger, mentally disabled man while a soliciting home care worker for services through Craigslist.

Marquis' report said Carrier began violating numerous conditions of his probation at the end of July.

Carrier called Personal Touch Home Care in Auburn on Sunday, July 28, and three more calls that same day to Always There Senior Care in Manchester, according to probation officials.

The owner of the Manchester business told police on July 30 that she received a call from a man who identified himself as "John Bilodeau" who requested services for his son named "Bobby."

The man claimed that his son had been injured in a car accident two years earlier and needed help, "changing his diapers and washing him up," a police report says. "He continued to tell Bloom that his son 'Bobby' wanted to have someone there for companionship and to take him out for rides."

No meeting ever happened, but Manchester and Hooksett police were later notified.

Carrier was briefly jailed for violating his probation and released from custody on Aug. 2, according to a probation report.

New Boston police learned of an incident in their town allegedly involving Carrier on Aug. 15.

A man identifying himself as "Paul" called a woman who advertised child care on Craigslist. The man claimed he had a four year old son who he needed home care.

During the conversation, "Paul" said that he had a 23-year-old son named "Bobby," who required "assistance with diaper changes," police said.

The woman set up a meeting with the caller for later that day, but only found "Bobby", the older son, at her doorstep, according to a police report.

The woman never let her visitor go beyond her front porch.

"What really concerned (the woman) was that he had a blue canvas bag (similar to a grocery bag) filled with the diaper's and related items, to include rubber gloves," the report says. "She specifically noted Depends, purple latex gloves and a cloth 'swimming' diaper."

The woman told police that it was made clear that "Bobby" wanted to have his diaper changed, and she responded to the request by telling him to leave.

The woman later told her mother about the incident who recalled seeing a similar story in media reports.

She reported the incident to police and later identified Carrier as the visitor to her house after seeing a photo of him.
Marquis confronted Carrier on Tuesday once he learned about the Aug. 15 incident.

He said in a report that Carrier "lied to me several times before I shared with him several bits of information that I had learned from the police report."

Carrier "eventually admitted that he had purchased a 'track phone' from the Wal-Mart in Hooksett on an unknown date and time," Marquis said in the report. Carrier used the phone to access a web browser and located a phone number of a child care service being advertised on Craigslist, according to Marquis.

"He then had a conversation with the victim and admitted to bringing a duffle bag full of diapers, wipes and a box of gloves," Marquis added. "He then destroyed the phone in the Merrimack River and put the other items in the garbage."

No date has been set for the probation hearing.
