Woman convicted of starving child indicted on perjury, falsifying evidence charges
A grand jury handed up the indictments June 20 against Christina Thomas, 34, of 214 Birch Hill Road, New Durham, for allegedly falsifying physical evidence and perjury in connection with her three-week trial in Strafford County Superior Court Feb. 21.
Members of a grand jury handed up the indictments June 20.
Thomas allegedly prevented one of her children from testifying by sending him to the Boston area when he was due in court. She also allegedly made a false statement under oath by claiming she did not tell Kevin Tully "he would never see the kids again if he didn't testify," according to the indictment.
Following the trial, members a jury found her guilty of first-degree assault for her actions as primary caretaker of the boy - who is developmentally delayed - between 2006 and 2010.
During that time, Thomas told New Durham School officials to take a carrot stick away from the boy if he misbehaved. As a result of the tactic, the boy – who weighed 23 pounds when he was 6½ years old – "failed to thrive," according to court records.
Thomas, who remains in Strafford County jail held without bail, is scheduled to be sentenced on the first-degree assault charge Monday. She'll be arraigned in Strafford County Superior Court on July 2 on the new charges.
Falsifying physical evidence and perjury are Class B felonies that each couldresult in 3½ to 7 years in prison and a $2,000 fine.
