DOVER — On Jan. 16, a grand jury indicted Samuel Coffey, 19, of 1113 Lilac Lane #13, on four counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault and two counts of felonious sexual assault.
Dep. County Attorney Alysia Cassotis said the recent charges are in addition to previous indictments stemming from the same incident in Somersworth in December 2012.
On July 18, Coffey was indicted on four counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, two counts of felonious sexual assault, second-degree assault, simple assault, unsworn falsification and prohibited sales for allegedly assaulting, strangling, slapping and providing the girl, who currently is 17, with alcohol Dec. 17, 2012, in Somersworth. At the time, Coffey was 17 and the girl was 16, according to the indictments.
Cassotis said the charges from July and January are completely separate from another case in Dover.
On Sept. 19, Coffey was indicted on four counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault for allegedly sexually assaulting a girl, who is now 15, during an incident in Dover June 8.
He is scheduled to be arraigned on the recent charges Jan. 30 at 9 a.m.
Each count of aggravated felonious sexual assault could result in up to 10 to 20 years in prison and a $4,000 fine. Felonious sexual assault and second-degree assault are Class B felonies and each count could yield up to 3½ to 7 years in prison and a $4,000 fine. Simple assault, unsworn falsification and prohibited sales are Class A misdemeanors, which could each result up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine, if convicted.
