Hooksett man to plead guilty for latest indecent exposure
BRENTWOOD - A Hooksett man with a history of faking a brain injury to get home care workers to change his diaper intends to plead guilty to an indecent exposure charge in connection with his latest case in Hampton, according to court records.
Eric Carrier, 24, struck a plea deal with county prosecutors that will allow him to avoid trial in superior court.
Terms of the plea deal have not yet been made public, but court records say the sentence is a fully negotiated disposition. A judge still has to approve the deal.
A plea-and-sentencing hearing has been set for April 30 in Rockingham County Superior Court.
Had Carrier been convicted at trial, he could have faced 3½ to seven years in state prison.
Carrier was indicted in January for attempting to expose himself to a home care worker that he met up with in Hampton on Sept. 12.
He responded to an advertisement that a woman posted on the web site Craigslist.org, and claimed he was a 22-year-old disabled man, according to police. When the two met in Hampton, Carrier claimed he needed help changing his soiled diaper and could not control his bowel movements due to a brain injury, police said.
The 30-year-old Nashua woman grew suspicious of his behavior and later notified police, according to a court complaint.
Carrier was charged last year by Hooksett police in 2011 with indecent exposure for soliciting five other women by posing as a disabled person on Craigslist, according to police. He was convicted of indecent exposure last July 30, police said.
Hooksett police said they received reports from several other women during their investigation, but could not go forward with those cases because they were beyond the statute of limitations.
