Former Dartmouth rugby player innocent on all counts
Parker C. Gilbert, 21, who had a new London address when he was indicted last year on seven counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault, walked out of the North Haverhill courtroom a free man after a jury of six men and six women found him not guilty on six total counts after a judge dismissed two sexual assault charges during eight days of testimony before the jury got the case late Wednesday.
The large group of family and friends that had supported Gilbert throughout broke out in sobs and cries after the last of the verdicts was read before Judge Peter H. Bornstein told him he was free to go. Gilbert's mother threw herself around her son, and the group of about 30 took turns greeting him in a conference room off the courthouse waiting room.
"We are pleased by the verdict," defense attorney George Ostler of Norwich, Vt., said. "The jury did its job and justice was done." Ostler said the family, including Parker Gilbert, would have no direct comment to reporters.
