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 Aug. 15.

Eric Carrier pretended to be a mentally impaired man when he went to the home of a New Boston woman who advertised a child care business on Craigslist, 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 several conditions of his probation at the end of July.

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

No date has been set for the probation hearing.
