Claremont police dispatcher charged with sex assault and incest, placed on leave
James Boisclair, 53, of Claremont, was arrested Wednesday night by state police and arraigned on the charges in district court the following day, said Sgt. Daniel Brow of Troop C, which led the investigation.
Boisclair has been a dispatcher for the Claremont Police Department for more than 15 years, said Claremont Police Chief Alex Scott Thursday.
Following his arrest, Scott placed Boisclair on paid leave.
“He's been placed on administrative leave pending a review,” Scott said.
Thursday morning Boisclair was arraigned on the charges in the 8th Circuit Court District Division in Keene, said Sullivan County Attorney Marc Hathaway Thursday.
Boisclair's bail was set at $100,000 cash or surety, Hathaway said. An additional bail hearing is to be held Friday morning in the Keene district court.
Hathaway said he doesn't know why Boisclair was arraigned in the Cheshire County court, but suspects it was because of judicial availability.
A probable cause hearing is set for July 16.
Boisclair is currently being held at the Sullivan County House of Corrections in Unity.
