Released NH sex offender faces new charges
A former Raymond man who was freed by a judge in July on a 1998 sex assault case was arrested in Maine Friday afternoon on new sexual assault charges involving a young girl.
Patrick Eschenbrenner, 50, of 385 Kelley Road in Glenburn, Maine, was taken into custody Friday afternoon by Penobscot County deputies on a fugitive from justice charge.
Raymond police had charged Eschenbrenner with four counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. The assaults happened over a period of months when the girl was between the ages of 7 and 11, police said.
Eschenbrenner's arrest comes as he was awaiting a retrial in Rockingham County Superior Court on charges that he molested a girl in the fall of 1998 when she was about 8 years old.
Eschenbrenner was convicted by a Rockingham County jury in that case in 2006, and ordered to serve 10 to 20 years in state prison.
Superior Court Chief Justice Tina Nadeau concluded in July that Eschenbrenner had to be given a new trial after his defense lawyer, Phil Utter, argued that the defense lawyer in Eschenbrenner's first trial should have objected to the testimony of two Raymond police officers.
