Gilmanton man guilty of sex assault on disabled man

LACONIA — A former Gilmanton man pleaded guilty in the Belknap County Superior Court on September 9 to two counts of rape for assaulting a disabled victim who is wheelchair bound in 2006 and 2007, while he was living in Gilmanton.

According to the Gilmanton Police, Roger Toutaint, 54, formerly of Leatherstocking Lane in Gilford but recently of Hillcrest Drive in Laconia, will serve five-to-10 years in the N.H. State Prison on one count of aggravated felonious sexual assault.

He was sentenced to 10 to 20 years on the second count which was suspended pending his good behavior for 20 years.

At the time of his arrest by Gilmanton Police in October of 2012, Toutaint was on probation for a different assault conviction stemming from a 2007 incident that involved a minor female.

One of the terms of his probation was that he take a mandatory lie detector test and it was during this test that he admitted to assaulting the disable man. During the ensuing police investigation, he provided Gilmanton Police with the details.

Both assaults occurred during the 2006 to 2007 time frame.
