Londonderry man arraigned on charges of sexual assault against young girl
Christopher Plummer, 49, was arraigned Wednesday in Rockingham County Superior Court on six counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault.
Assistant County Attorney Terri Harrington asked a judge on Wednesday for Plummer to undergo an assessment by the sheriff’s department for pre-trial detainees who are on electronic monitoring. The assessment would include a risk assessment by the sheriff’s department and a visit to where he is living while free on bail. Judge N. William Delker approved Harrington’s request.
Prosecutors say Plummer sexually assaulted the girl, carrying out a pattern of abuse that spanned from January 2003 to January 2012.
Plummer is accused of entering the girl’s bedroom when she was sleeping inside a Londonderry home and allegedly making the girl engage in sexual acts, according to police. The girl was between the ages of 6 and 14 when he was being sexually abused by Plummer, according to prosecutors. Londonderry police arrested Plummer at his home Feb. 11.
Plummer initially faced three counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault. The three new charges added by the grand jury essentially doubled his potential maximum sentence of 60 to 120 years in state prison.
