Manchester Crimewatch: Woman charged in motel fire says she doesn't remember setting it
Christine Flebotte, 37, of 41 Manchester St., is accused of setting a fire Dec. 28, 2013, at the Cadillac Motel, 500 Chestnut St.
Woman’s voice was raspy
A police prosecutor Friday requested $10,000 cash/surety bail for Zack Gingras, 22, of 429 Central St., at Gingras’ arraignment in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on a felony charge of first-degree assault.
Police prosecutor Richard Brown said the investigating officers noted the woman had a raspy voice and Gingras had scratches on his face that fit with the accusation.
Pleads to local charges
Bennie White, 46, who lists the homeless shelter as his address, was brought to Circuit Court-Manchester District Division on a forgery warrant from Merrimack District Division, where he had failed to appear.
Negotiated plea entered
Jonathan Butterworth, 21, who had been scheduled for a bail revocation hearing Friday in Circuit Court, after he was charged with stalking his fiancee while out on bail on three charges of assaulting her, pleaded guilty to two stalking charges.
Butterworth was living at 470 Silver St. with his fiancee and a third person when he was arrested for assault. He was charged with stalking for returning to the Silver Street apartment while his victim was present. He must return to court May 6, 2015, for a deferred sentence hearing. If he has complied with all the conditions, the sentence can then be suspended.
On Thursday, Toni Grasso, 28, asked a Circuit Court-Manchester District Division judge to change bail conditions that bar her from returning to her residence at 201 Green St.
Grasso pleaded innocent to two simple assault charges, one alleging she grabbed her boyfriend by the throat and punched him in the face and the second alleging she threw a snow boot, hitting a 19-month-old child in the shoulder as the child stood in her portable play yard April 15 at 205 Bell St.
Judge denies bail request
Ottman told Judge Gregory Michael she needed to get out of jail, saying: “My dad is in the ICU.”
Michael set a May 15 hearing and set bail at $1,000 cash/surety, saying: “That’s as low as I’ll go.”
William Yates, 22, of 246 Main St., pleaded innocent Thursday in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division to a misdemeanor charge of violation of a domestic violence protective order that bars contact with a specific woman.
The prosecutor sought $1,000 cash/surety bail, noting Yates has convictions that include criminal trespass, willful concealment and simple assault.
The judge set bail at $1,000 personal recognizance. Trial was set for June 3.
Skipped April 1 hearing
A city man who didn’t show up in Circuit Court-Manchester District Division for a deferred sentence hearing April 1 said Thursday that he still hasn’t complied with the terms of his sentence on a 2012 assault conviction. The terms included a domestic violence evaluation within 45 days.
Holobinko had also missed his scheduled trial April 1 on charges of operating after suspension and uninspected vehicle.
May 14 hearing set
Circuit Court-Manchester District Division Judge Gregory Michael listened to Brandon Durdem’s explanation why he, a convicted felon, had a knife in his possession when stopped by police.
Given Durdem’s criminal history, which includes armed robbery and felon in possession of a weapon, Michael said: “You should know better.”
Durdem said: “I would like to ask for PR (personal recognizance).”
Michael wouldn’t go that far, but set bail at $500 cash/surety. No plea can be entered to a felony in Circuit Court, so a probable cause hearing was set for May 14.
