Dover Head Start volunteer was required to register as sex offender
Timothy Gordon, 25, of 12A Rogers St., was indicted by a Strafford County Superior Court grand jury on a felony charge of prohibition from child care service of persons convicted of certain offenses.
According to the indictment dated April 17 but released Tuesday, Gordon was convicted on Sept. 27, 2011, in Barnstable (Mass.) Superior Court of indecent assault and battery (A&B) on a person over 14. Under Massachusetts state law, a person convicted for indecent A&B must register with the Sex Offender Registry Board (SORB), and provide a DNA sample.
From Oct. 1, 2011, through May 1, 2013, Gordon undertook volunteer service which involved the care, instruction, or guidance of minor children by serving as an elected chair of the Policy Council for the board of directors for Head Start, the federal pre-school education program.
He was entrusted with contributing to hiring and firing decisions and approving Head Start programs and policies, according to the indictment.
He did this while having previously been convicted of felonious physical assault on a minor or of any sexual assault in another jurisdiction, in violation of state law, according to the indictment.
A message left at Head Start for comment was not immediately returned.
If convicted of the latest felony charge, Gordon faces a maximum sentence of from 7 1/2 to 14 years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
