Opening arguments are expected to begin today in the trial of Roland Dow, 28, who is accused of abusing James Nicholson in 2012, then making recordings coaching the boy with how to respond to questions about how he was injured.
The boy’s injuries led to the conviction of his mother, Jessica Linscott, 24, who began serving 2 ½ to 7 years in state prison on July 16 after pleading guilty to witness tampering and endangering the welfare of a child.
Dow and Linscott went on the run in November 2012 after bringing Nicholson to Exeter Hospital to be examined.
Hospital doctors concluded the boy suffered a brain injury, a loss of vision, first-degree burns on his wrist and arm and second-degree burns on his hand, according to a police affidavit.
Police obtained search warrants for Linscott and Dow’s apartment on Main Street two days after their visit to the hospital. Police say they also found videos of Dow coaching the boy with how to respond to questions when asked about his injuries. The couple was apprehended at Universal Studios in Orlando, Fla. on Nov. 28, 2012.
