One of his alleged victims, William Ingalls, Newton’s part-time fire chief, testified on Tuesday how Currier was willing to work on getting his price down from the $18,000 estimate that he quoted for his home.
Currier claimed he had a nearby roofing job at a church in Haverhill, Mass., that allowed him to buy his supplies at a discounted rate, according to court testimony.
The trial under way in Rockingham County is the first in what’s expected to be a procession of criminal trials against Currier brought by the state Attorney General’s Office. He faces similar charges in Merrimack, Coos and Hillsborough counties, where he has charges pending in both of its superior courts.
That price was dropped to $11,000 after Currier stepped outside twice to speak to someone on his cell phone, Marsha Ingalls testified.
“I had the money because I was saving it for my taxes and my medical bills,” Marsha Ingalls testified.
A month later, Marsha Ingalls called Currier because no work had started at her home.
