Former Dartmouth rugby player acquitted on rape charges
Upstairs, Grafton County Attorney Lara Saffo came out of her office and acknowledged she’d had a tough day in the courtroom when the verdicts were returned. She said bringing the charges had resulted in a “terrible” process from the start for the former freshman, who also left Dartmouth last year.
Saffo and Assistant Grafton County Attorney Paul Fitzgerald prosecuted the case.
Before they left the courthouse, Gilbert’s legal team also released a brief, written statement to reporters, saying, “we are relieved that this nightmare is over for Parker Gilbert and his family.”
The five counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault were “special felonies” in New Hampshire. Each count carried a maximum prison term of 20 years. The jury also found Gilbert not guilty of criminal trespassing, a Class A misdemeanor.
