Ronald Aboud – Repeat Sex Offender

13% of all new sex crimes is committed by someone
who is already on the sex offender registry

A convicted sex offender will tell a judge today why he is incompetent to stand trial on charges he sexually assaulted a young Windham boy in the mid-1980s.

Ronald Aboud, 43, formerly of Salem and Windham, is accused of abusing the boy while the two were neighbors. The boy was between the ages of 10 and 12, according to indictments.

Defense lawyers claim Aboud cannot go to trial on the charges because he struggles with understanding the complex legal issues surrounding his case.

A state forensic psychologist disagrees. Aboud stands accused of 20 counts of sexual assault for abusing the boy between August 1984 and 1987. The alleged abuse was reported to Windham police in 2006 after the victim decided to tell police.

Aboud served seven years in state prison in the 1990s, after admitting he tried to lure a 5-year-old Salem boy into the woods so he could molest him. He pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated felonious sexual assault. After his release from prison, he moved to Belmont. He is listed on the state’s Sex Offender Registry.

His criminal record includes a 1989 conviction for indecent assault and battery on a child. Aboud received a suspended sentence for that offense. If convicted, Aboud could spend decades in prison as a multiple offender.
