Hooksett man charged again with faking brain injury to get in-home nurse to change his diaper
HAMPTON — A Hooksett man with a record for faking a brain injury so unsuspecting in-home nurses would change his diaper has been arrested again for attempting a similar ruse, police said Thursday night.
Eric Carrier, 24, was charged by Hampton police on a single felony count of attempt to commit indecent exposure.
Carrier's latest arrest comes roughly a year after being charged with indecent exposure for soliciting five other women by posing as a disabled person on the web site Craigslist.org, according to police.
Last July, Hooksett police charged Carrier with five counts of indecent exposure, all involving different women. He was convicted of indecent exposure on July 30, police said.
Hooksett police said they received reports from several other women during their investigation last year, but could not go forward with those cases because they were beyond the statute of limitations.
The Hampton charge is a Class B felony, punishable by up to 3½ to 7 years in state prison.
In the Hampton case, Carrier first solicited the aid of an in-home care giver by responding to an advertisement on Craigslist, police said.
He allegedly posed as a 22-year-old disabled man who could not control his bowel movements due to a brain injury while communicating with the woman. Carrier met the female caregiver in Hampton on Sept. 12, and asked the woman if she would change his soiled undergarment, according to police.
The woman became suspicious about the request and contacted Hampton police that day.
Investigators believe that Carrier used Craigslist to find an unsuspecting adult care giver who would work with a disabled adult male.
Police learned of Carrier's actual age and his criminal past during their investigation.
Anyone with information on this case is urged to call the Hampton Police at 929-4444. Anonymous tips can be made through the Crimeline for the Hamptons at 929-1222 or by email to: email@example.com.
