Two Rochester men indicted in child sex assault cases

DOVER — A 19-year-old man could spend 30 to 60 years in prison if convicted of charges that he sexually assaulted a child in Rochester for several years.

Nathan Hobbs, 19, who previously lived on Milton Road in East Rochester, was charged with three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault.

A grand jury handed up the indictments Nov. 14.

Between Oct. 12, 2007, and Oct. 12, 2012, Hobbs allegedly sexually assaulted the child — starting when he was 13 and she was 7. He also allegedly sexually assaulted her from Oct. 12, 2012 and Feb. 28, 2013, according to the indictments.

Hobbs is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, Nov. 26 at 9 a.m. in Strafford County Superior Court.

Five charges

In another indictment, a 21-year-old man was indicted this month for allegedly sexually assaulting a child who is now 14.

Jacob Jones, 21, of 94 Wakefield St., Apt. 1, in Rochester, was charged with five counts of felonious sexual assault.

Between Dec. 25, 2012, to Jan. 1, 2013, Jones allegedly sexually assaulted the child, when she was 13, according to the indictments handed up Nov. 14.

Hobbs is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, Nov. 26 at 9 a.m. in Strafford County Superior Court.

Each count of felonious sexual assault is a Class B felony, which could result in a maximum sentence of 3½ to 7 years in prison and a $4,000 fine, if convicted.
