Eric Carrier, 25, was sentenced on a probation violation for contacting home care workers in Auburn, Manchester and New Boston since July. In one of the cases, Carrier showed up at the home of a New Boston woman who specialized in child care services.
Public defenders were seeking a 12-month jail term so Carrier could continue with treatment at the jail.
Judge N. William Delker said he had to balance Carrier's need for treatment and a need to protect the public.
Delker recommended that Carrier undergo the Sex Offender Program at the state prison.
The sentence was the full length of a suspended prison term that Carrier received for another solicitation case that happened in Hampton on Sept. 12.
He had spent 220 days in jail prior to his guilty plea on April 30.
In that case, Carrier posed as a father seeking care for his mentally disabled son while speaking to the home care worker online, and then met up with the woman posing as the son. During their meeting, Carrier asked to have his diaper change, which prompted the woman to call Hampton police.
One of the victims in the Hampton case spoke at Carrier's sentencing hearing on Thursday in Rockingham County Superior Court, according to Assistant County Attorney Brad Bolton.
Probation officials and police have been dealing with Carrier since June 2011, when he was first arrested in Hooksett for posing as a younger, mentally disabled man while a soliciting home care worker for services through Craigslist.
Carrier began violating numerous conditions of his probation at the end of July, according to probation officials.
Carrier called Personal Touch Home Care in Auburn on Sunday, July 28 and three more calls that same day to Always There Senior Care in Manchester, according to probation officials.
New Boston police learned of an incident in their town allegedly involving Carrier on Aug. 15.
A man identifying himself as "Paul" called a woman who advertised child care on Craigslist. The man claimed he had a four year old son who he needed home care.
During the conversation, "Paul" said that he had a 23-year-old son named "Bobby," who required "assistance with diaper changes," police said.
The woman set up a meeting with the caller for later that day, but only found "Bobby", the older son, at her doorstep, according to a police report.
The woman never let her visitor go beyond her front porch.
"What really concerned (the woman) was that he had a blue canvas bag (similar to a grocery bag) filled with the diaper's and related items, to include rubber gloves," a probation report says. "She specifically noted Depends, purple latex gloves and a cloth 'swimming' diaper."
