One victim, a co-worker of Fowler’s who kept $17,000 in a safe, had his home broken into while he was on vacation, Assistant County Attorney Jerome Blanchard said Tuesday.
Fowler also cased homes in Hampstead, Derry and Londonderry and called them on his cell phone to make sure no one was home before entering, according to Blanchard.
Delker said he considered Fowler’s testimony “blatant perjury” including statements where he claimed that valuables he pawned in Massachusetts weren’t stolen, but similar items he was given.
Homeowners who were victims of the break-ins did not attend Tuesday’s hearing.
She said that Fowler has taught their three children to work hard, and supported her through four years of college.
“He really is a caring person,” Condron told Delker. “He wouldn’t take from hardworking people. He is a provider. He is not a bad person and I would like you to remember we have three children, and I really need him.”
Defense lawyer Mark Stevens argued that Fowler should serve a five to 10 years in prison for his seven convictions. Stevens asked that his client have the right to contest restitution totaling $60,700 among the victims at a later hearing.
