Derry man charged with sex assault, endangering children


BRENTWOOD — A Derry man charged with sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl solicited three others for sexual acts, offering them cash and even hosting an underage drinking party at his home, according to prosecutors.

Raymond Black, 61, is facing 23 charges in Rockingham County Superior Court, including aggravated felonious sexual assault, prostitution, indecent exposure and felonious sexual assault.

Black was initially charged with seven offenses for allegedly having sexual contact with two middle school aged girls. But a grand jury recently added 16 more charges.

Prosecutors said Black, who remains held at the Rockingham County jail, solicited the girls, offering them varying amounts of cash between Sept. 15, 2013, and last June 1.

Black twice offered a 12-year-old girl between $20 and $40 in cash “if she would kick him” in the groin, prosecutors said. He faces two counts of prostitution for soliciting the girl. He also engaged in a sexual act with the same girl on another occasion, prosecutors said. That offense is punishable by up to 10 to 20 years in state prison.

Prosecutors also charged Black with hosting an underage house party where he supplied alcohol and drugs to more than five people who were underage, according to court papers. Black allegedly dispensed marijuana to three of the girls — ages 12 and 13 — and bit a 13-year-old girl on the stomach. He faces a misdemeanor simple assault charge for allegedly biting the girl.

Black is also accused of throwing a knife in the direction of two 14-year-olds who were at his home.

Derry police initially learned about Black’s interaction with the girls last October. Several of the other charges Black is facing are Class B felonies, each punishable by up to 3½ to 7 years in prison. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges. He remains held on $25,000 cash bail.
