Ossipee man faces sexual assault charges in Manchester
MANCHESTER — An Ossipee man could enter no plea in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a charge of aggravated felonious sexual assault.
Seth Greywolf, who has served two prison terms for sexual assault convictions, is charged with a pattern of sexual assault over six months or more, of a child who was under age 13 when the assaults allegedly began in January 2009.
Greywolf, 45, of 9 Pilgrim Lane, also has convictions in Manchester District Division Circuit Court for assault in 2012 and breach of bail and stalking in 2011. According to the sexual offender registry, he also uses the aliases of Seth Branscomb and Richard Legault.
Police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier requested $50,000 cash/surety bail for Greywolf, but Greywolf told Judge John Emery he couldn’t raise that kind of money.
“I’m on disability,” he said. “I take care of my elderly mother.”
Greywolf said he is also enrolled in a mental health program in Carroll County, where he now lives.
Emery set bail at $30,000 cash/surety, with conditions that include no contact with the alleged assault victim. Because no plea can be entered to a felony in Circuit Court, a probable cause hearing was set for Oct. 22.
Drug, theft charges
Police said members of the street crime unit late Monday afternoon approached three pedestrians in the area of Walnut and Lowell streets who they suspected had been involved in drug activity.
Upon investigation, two of them, who had active warrants, were arrested. They were also found in possession of drugs and were additionally charged with drug offenses and both appeared Tuesday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division.
William Fitzpatrick, 30, of 155 Agnes St., was arraigned on felonies of theft by unauthorized taking and possession of a narcotic, a misdemeanor of theft by deception, and violations of operating after suspension for which he failed to appear for arraignment: a city charge from November 2009 and a New Hampshire State Police charge from August 2012. A police prosecutor said Fitzpatrick is also sought on a court order from Hillsborough County Superior Court in connection with a drug charge.
The theft charges allege Fitzpatrick took a 14 carat gold engagement ring with a one carat diamond, valued at nearly $1,100, from a Log Street address and sold it to Cash for Gold on Gabrielle Street for $143. The narcotic possession charge alleges he had in his possession Monday a small amount of heroin an officer reported seeing Sara Levesque hand to Fitzpatrick.
Police said Levesque, 27, of 20 Old Turnpike Road, Hillsboro, had a Clonazepam pill and drug paraphernalia with suspected heroin residue in her possession Monday, prompting new charges of possession of a controlled drug and possession of a narcotic drug, both felonies.
There were also warrants for five felony forgery charges that allege Levesque cashed stolen checks totaling $2,450 at Citizens Bank branches in June and two felonies of theft by deception and receiving stolen property related to the stolen checks and obtaining cash from the bank through the forgeries.
In addition, Levesque had failed to appear in court Sept. 13 on charges of forgery of a check for $500 at the Bank of America branch on Massabesic Street and misdemeanor receiving stolen property for cashing the stolen check. Levesque had also failed to appear on a forgery charge in Circuit Court-Merrimack District Division earlier this year.
Bail for Fitzpatrick was set at $5,000 cash/surety, with conditions that include no contact with two people and not going to Cash for Gold. Bail for Levesque was set at $5,000 cash/surety on the new charges and include no contact with the check owners and not going to any Citizens Bank branch. Levesque also has a $1,000 cash bail on the charges for which she failed to appear in Manchester in September, plus a $50 penalty for failing to appear, and a $2,500 cash/surety bail on the Merrimack charge.Both Fitzpatrick and Levesque were scheduled for probable cause hearings Oct. 22 on the Manchester felonies. Fitzpatrick has a Nov. 4 trial date on the state police motor vehicle charge and a Nov. 5 trial on the Manchester misdemeanor and motor vehicle charges.
Levesque has a Nov. 4 trial date on her misdemeanor charge and an Oct. 24 court date in Merrimack.
Nathanial Hill, 23, of 346 Spruce St., could enter no plea in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a felony charge of second-degree assault that alleges he put both hands around his ex-girlfriend’s neck and squeezed until she lost consciousness.
But Hill told Judge John Emery: “I’m not a violent guy.” He said the alleged victim is the mother of his child and he wouldn’t have been granted guardianship of their 6-month-old daughter, if he were a bad person. He said the woman passed out and now “she gets the kid.”
Hill said he works two jobs and told the judge: “I have my own place.” When Emery questioned why he put down no earnings if he works two jobs, Hill said he works for two labor staffing companies and gets paid in cash and they told him if he’s paid in cash “it doesn’t count.”
Police prosecutor Carrissa Pelletier sought $10,000 cash/surety bail for Hill, saying he was convicted in 2012 on two criminal mischief charges involving the same woman and has two convictions for theft by deception. Hill protested the proposed bail amount as too high, saying: “I’ve never missed court,” but Emery set bail at the amount requested by the prosecutor, with conditions barring any use of alcohol or drugs and barring contact with the alleged victim and barring him from her residence.Because no plea can be entered to a felony in Circuit Court, a probable cause hearing was set for Oct. 22.
