State says 3-year-old was healthy until defendant abused him

“He went from a healthy little boy to a child who couldn’t see due to the blood in his eyes,” Assistant Rockingham County Attorney Kirsten Wilson told jurors during opening statements.
Jurors are expected to see graphic videos that will show an injured Nicholson being coached by Dow to say that he didn’t get nose bleeds or get spanked, if questioned by child advocacy workers.
Linscott, 25, is serving a 2 ½ to 7 year prison sentence for felony witness tampering and failing to report the alleged abuse. She is expected to be the state’s star witness.
Defense lawyer Tom Gleason cast Linscott as an absentee mother who routinely had fallouts with her family and accused them of abusive behavior.
“She throws the last person close to her in her life under the bus,” Gleason said.
Of the 15 jurors selected for the trial, 12 are women. A drawing by the judge at the end of the case will determine who will serve as alternates.
“Despising someone and not finding them credible is two different things,” Wilson said to the jury.
