Former Dover official indicted for sexual assault, criminal threatening
Michael Weeden, 31, of 365 Sixth St., was charged with aggravated felonious sexual assault and criminal threatening after he allegedly pointed a firearm at her head.
According to the indictments, which the grand jury handed up May 15, Weeden allegedly threatened to “shoot her and then kill himself” during an incident that occurred between Feb. 1 and 29 of 2012.
Weeden allegedly sexually assaulted the woman between March 1 and 31 of 2012, according to the indictments.
After being elected as the Ward 6 representative on the city council in 2011, Jason Gagnon defeated Weeden 414-339 in November of 2013. Weeden also served in the N.H. House of Representatives from 2010 to 2012.
On Dec. 2, 2013, Weeden was involved in a fatal accident. His 2012 Chrysler 300 collided head-on with a 2008 Chevrolet Aveo driven by Martin J. Carignan, 87, of 22 Tates Brook Road, Somersworth - near Weeden's Sixth Street home. Carignan was pronounced dead at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Mass., the next day.
Police previously said Weeden was attempting to buckle his seat belt when his vehicle veered into the oncoming lane. Following an investigation, the county attorney's office determined the accident did not require criminal charges to be filed.
Weeden is to be arraigned May 29 at 9 a.m. in Strafford County Superior Court
Aggravated felonious sexual assault is a special felony and criminal threatening is a Class A felony, both of which could result in 10 to 20 years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
