Craig Driscoll – Repeat Sex Offender – Got off with probation then carried on as before

A previously convicted sex offender was indicted this week on 18 counts of possessing child pornography.

Craig Driscoll, 28, formerly of Nashua, is currently serving three to six years in state prison on a probation violation stemming from Probation Officer Jason Berry’s discovery of the alleged porn stash last year.

Each of the child porn charges carries a maximum of 3-1/2 to seven years in prison. Driscoll is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges April 30 in Hillsborough County Superior Court.

In October 2006, Driscoll pleaded guilty to aggravated felonious sexual assault for raping a 14-year-old Manchester girl and threatening her with a gun and knife. He was sentenced to a year in jail, probation and required to complete sex offender treatment, prosecutors said.

Berry filed probation violation charges against Driscoll last year, after he was found drinking with two teenage girls in Wilton in July 2008, and again after finding the alleged child pornography in Driscoll’s home Aug. 8. Driscoll was convicted of the probation violations last month.
