DOVER — A man who served 21 years in prison for raping a North Hampton girl was arrested Monday on a charge of failing to meet sex offender registration laws, said Dover police.

Charles Paul, 52, was found on Washington Street and taken into custody.

Police began investigating May 25 after receiving a tip Paul had moved to an apartment at 6 Western Ave. and had not complied with the registration laws.

Paul was released Monday on $1,500 personal recognizance bond and will be arraigned June 28 at Strafford County Superior Court.

Paul was convicted of two counts of aggravated felonious sexual assault at Rockingham County Superior Court in 1987. He had left the girl battered after the rape. He was released in 2008.

In March of 2010, Paul was convicted of drug possession with intent to sell and being a felon with a dangerous weapon, according to New Hampshire State Police.
