Former Claremont police dispatcher waives hearing on sexual assault charges
James Boisclair, 53, of Claremont, was expected to appear in the 8th Circuit Court in Keene Wednesday for the hearing, but the case has been moved to the Cheshire County Superior Court in Keene.
Investigators are alleging Boisclair sexually assaulted the victim over a 20-year span, from age 4 to 24. Throughout the years of abuse he threatened to kill the victim if she told anyone about the abuse, according to Cheshire County Attorney Chris McLaughlin at Boisclair’s arraignment last month. The last assault occurred in 2012 when she returned home from college, he said.
As of Aug. 25, Bosclair was no longer a city employee, Claremont Police Chief Alexander Scott said.
The case was transferred from Sullivan County to Cheshire County to avoid possible conflicts of interest.
