LACONIA — A former city man who was convicted of felonious sexual assault and is a registered Tier III sex offender was sentenced to serve 2 to 5 years in the New Hampshire State Prison for failing to report to police within five business days of his birthday.
David Simonds, 52, whose last known address was 150 Valley St., is required to report quarterly to local police.
A charge against Simonds for failing to inform police about a change of name or address was dropped.
Police affidavits said Simonds had an appointment to report to a city detective on Oct. 21. The detective said he repeated called him and left messages for him.
At some point, the detective spoke to a person who knows Simonds and was told Simonds moved to Gilford.
Affidavits said Simonds was convicted of failing to register and of failing to inform last January. Police said because of the previous Class B felonies, the one he pleaded guilty to Thursday is Class A felony.
Three months of the minimum of Simonds' sentence was reduced pending his good behavior and completion of multiple programs while incarcerated. He was credited with eight days of time served.
